A brick wall is built by using 2 bricks less in each layer than in the previous one. The wall has m layers and in total 21m+40 bricks are used. If the top layer has only 4 bricks, determine:A) the value of m b) the total number of bricks in the wall

i need to know how to do this one please

let a = 4 we know d = 2 S_{m} = m/2[8 + (m-1)(2)] 21m + 40 = m[3+m] take over, (I got m=20) Once you have m, sub into 21m+40 for the sum.

thx alot
