    grow ten times

    Hundreds of people have already been helped by the service this year,Huang said.
    Huang said that the system has about 10,000 subscribers and she expects that number to grow 10 times over the next three years.

    Does the underlined sentence tell us that the users' number will grow to 100,000 by 2015?

    Thanks

    Jason

    No, it means that she expects it to grow to 100,000 by 2015.
