  1. The statement, "There are 2 rows of seat" , is confusing.

    Is there a front row of 25, then an aisle, and another 25 seats for the entire first row ???

    Please be more specific.
    Once that is cleared it looks like a simple arithmetic sequence question
    with
    a = 25
    d = 1

  3. Now it is very easy

    tn = a+(n-1)d
    = 25 + (n-1)(1)
    = 24 + n

    so which row comes closest to 35 ?
    24+n=n35
    n=11

    The 35 students can sit all in row 11
