what was his salary during the 15 th year?

A) $ 8600 B) None of these C) $ 5600 D) $ 9000

  • Math - ,

    3000+ 400n where n = # of year

    n=1 (first year) 3000+400n = 3000 +400(1) = 3400
    .
    .
    .
    .
    n= 15 (15th year) 3000+ 400(15) = 3000+ 6000 = 9000

    maybe this is rite?

    during 1st year = 3000
    during 2nd year = 3000 + 1(400)
    during 3rd year = 3000 + 2(400)
    .
    .
    during 15th year = 3000 + 14(400) = 8600
