During 1975 and 2005, Giant Pandas numbers had fallen from 2500 to 1600 largely due to loss of habitat and poachers. However after decades of conservation efforts, Giant Pandas are on the road to recovery. Giant Pandas numbers had increased by 16% during 2005 and 2015. About how many Giant Pandas were there in 2015?
1600 x 1.16 = 1856 = about 1900
