Hello, I just want to know what they want me to do because i don't really understand the question.
(iv) in total from the end of the nth day to the end of the 2nd day. Simplify your answer.
These are the question it asks before;
17. The training programme of a pilot requires him to fly 'circuits' of an airfeild. Each day he flies 3 more circuits than the day before. On the fifth day he flew 51 circuits.
Calculate how many circuits he flew:
(i) on the first day
(ii) in total by the end of the fifth day
(iii) in total by the end of the nth day.
I also have the answers to everything

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, do you have the answer for (iii)? That one'll give you the formula for the rest, because it's the formula a for 'nth', or any day.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok. I got the question before that fine answer is \[\frac{ 2 }{ n }(3n +1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is asking you to figure out how many flights the pilot made each day

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No I mean the last one,where it wants me to calculate how many circuits he flew in total from the end of the nth day to the end of the 2nth day it says. I am not sure how to do that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh I just noticed I had a typo in the question there. It was meant to be what I said now sorry!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It tells you how many flights were done on the 5th day right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and it says each day was 3 flights more than the prior day. So to figure out how many flights were done the day before what should you do, add or subtract?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0subtract the difference

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.014? I read it to say that there were 51 flights on the fifth day. So, yes. Subtract 3 from 51, and 3 from that answer to count backwards to the first day

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I...I have no clue why I typed 51 there.....

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so there were 14 flights on the fifth day, still subtract by 3 for each day

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, n= some number like an X in algebra. It is asking from some day to the end of the second day. So which day comes before the second day?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, the first day. So how many were flown on the first and second day?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why isn't it the answer?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well the answer in the textbook is \[\frac{ n }{ 2 }(9n+1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Did you look at the picture I sent? I am afraid I made a few mistakes when typing it out (sorry!) so that might help

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That answer doesn't look correct for this problem. Are you sure you have the right answer for the right problem? Double check

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thats definitely the right one. Even got my mother to check :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The questions before those I had no problem with.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If we look at day two and place a 2 where the n is that would indicate that there were 19 flights on the second day, and we know that isn't the case. You will have to ask the teacher. Good luck

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually, I am homeschooled. I am the teacher! But no worries I will figure it out. :D Thanks for your time! I appreciate your trying.
