Numbers of seats in rows in Theater A:
RA=FA+(n1)*4
FA=Numbers of seats in first row=30
nnumber of row
RA=30+(n1)*4
first row has 30 seats
second row has:
30+(21)*4=30+1*4=30+4=34 seats
third row has:
30+(31)*4= 30+2*4=30+8=38 seats
fourth row has:
30+(41)*4=30+3*4=30+12=42 seats

In Teater B first row has 30 seats,and each row has 4 more seats in it than the previous row has.

That means that each row in theatre B has 10 seats more then row in Theatre A.
If both Theaters has 25 rows.
Difference between numbers of seats in Theater A and Theater B is:
25*10=250 seats
