Question

# A carpenter was hired to build $$192$$ window frames. The first day he made $$5$$ frames and each day, thereafter he made $$2$$ more frames than he made the day before. How many days did he take to finish the job?

Solution

## We have $$5+7+9+.....=192$$As we know, $$S_n=\dfrac n2 \{2a+(n-1)d\}..............where \ a=first \ term, \ n=no. \ of \ terms, \ d=common \ difference$$$$\Rightarrow \dfrac{n}{2}\times [10+(n-1)\times 2]=192$$$$\Rightarrow n(n+4)=192$$$$\Rightarrow n^2+4n-192=0$$$$\Rightarrow (n+16)(n-12)=0$$$$\Rightarrow n=12 ......as \ n \ can't \ be \ equal \ to \ -16$$.Mathematics
