first find num of dimes then multiply by 0.1 to get value in dollars sequence goes 18,17,16...1 so you are subtracting 1 each time there is a formula for sum of arithmetic sequence sum = 1/2*n*(a1+an) n=num of rows

ok just concentrate on the formula for the sum of the series we need a value for n, a1, and an n is num of rows a1 is first num in sequence an is last num in sequence
