Homework Help: Math

Posted by Anonymous on Monday, December 27, 2010 at 10:17am.

A pile of bricks has 85 bricks in the bottom row, 81 bricks in the second row up, 77 in the third, and so on up to the top row that contains only 1 brick. How many bricks are in the 12th row?

I don't know if I'm right but I attempted this problem below

c = a1 - d
c = 85 - 4 = 81

- 85 + 81 = 166



Sn = n / 2 (a1 + an)

Sn = 85 / 2 (85 + 166)

Sn = 10667.5
