Question

# Gabriela is selling friendship bracelets for a school fundraiser. After the first day, she has 234 bracelets left. After the second day, she has 222 bracelets left. Assuming the sales pattern continues and it is an arithmetic sequence, how many bracelets will Gabriela have to sell after the fifth day?

Hint:

- A sequence is said to be arithmetic if the common difference is always constant.
- The General formula of any AP is .

## The correct answer is: a_n=230.

- We have given after the first day, she has 234 bracelets left. After the second day, she has 222 bracelets left. Assuming the sales pattern continues and it is an arithmetic sequence.
- We have to find the how many bracelets will Gabriela have to sell after the fifth day?

Step 1 of 1:

It is an AP with first number 234 and common difference -1

Now the explicit formula will be

Now after 5^{th} day the number of bracelets will be

Now after 5

^{th}day the number of bracelets will be
