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

Thanks, I think this is correct. I n elp w/ the concepts.

• Math -

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