• math -

so you want
25+26+.. for 30 terms
an arithmetic series where a=25 , d=1 ,and n=30
sum(3) = (30/2)(50 + 29(1)) = 1185

• math -

a1=25 d=1 n=30

sn=30/2{2(25)+(30-1)1}
sn=15(50+29)
sn=15(79)
sn=1,185 seats in the theatre

• math -

a1=25 d=1 n=30

sn=30/2{2(25)+(30-1)1}
sn=15(50+29)
sn=15(79)
sn=1,185 seats in the theatre
