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
