Did Prophet Noah(a.s) lived for 950?


'Millat "IBRAHIM" {AleyhiSalaam}
Or; he went on making efforts for 950 years for the reformation of his wicked people, and he did not lose heart even though he suffered persecutions for such a long time?

Prophet Noah (A.S) or more correctly Nuh (A.S) preached for about 950 it is mentioned in the Holy Quran that he preached for 1000 less 50 years among his people, so it can be said that he lived more than 950 years, if you add 40 years of Prophethood to 950 years of preaching that comes to about nearly 1000 years.
And Allah Knows Best!

And We certainly sent Noah to his people, and he remained among them a thousand years minus fifty years, and the flood seized them while they were wrongdoers. 29.14

Sent as being born into the community or sent as a Prophet? Remained as birth to death or remained preaching and then the flood happened. "His people" are the community as a whole or just his followers. The people who joined him as followers are among the community also. I don't know. Best to look at it from an Arabic language.
