### Re: Series and Progressions

Hi zetafunc and bobbym,

The Solution SP # 28 is correct, zetafunc! Good work!

To bobbym : The first and the fourth are extremes; the second the the third are means. Try solving the problem now!

SP # 29. A man repays a loan of \$3250 by paying \$20 in the first month and increases the payment by \$15 every month. How long will it take him to clear the loan?

### Re: Series and Progressions

Hi zetafunc and bobbym,

The solution is correct! Well done! I made a mistake in in wording the problem!
The problem ought to have been
Stephen started work in 1995 at an annual salary of \$5000 and received a \$200 raise each year. In what year did his annual salary reach \$7000?
and the solution : 11th year.

SP # 31. Find the nth term of the Arithmetic Progression 13, 8, 3, -2, ....
