The question is mangled, but if you want to say that S17 = 359 S21 = 966 for an arithmetic sequence, then just solve 17/2 (2a+16d) = 359 21/2 (2a+20d) = 966 For a geometric sequence, you need a(r^17-1)/(r-1) = 359 a(r^21-1)/(r-1) = 966 In either case, the answers are not simple.

Why don't you explain your answer, and we can see whether your math is sound. Did you start (with s(t) being the amount of salt present) ds/dt = 1 - 6/100 s s(0) = 50 ? Surely you can see that 104.82 is way off. Even with no salt draining out, only 110 lb would be present ...
