3rd Pole is 4m > a + 2d = 4
the 7th pole is 10m > a + 6d = 10
subtract those two equations:
4d = 6
d = 6/4 = 3/2
back in a + 2d = 4
a + 2(3/2) = 4
a + 3 = 4
a = 1
Pole(n) = 3 + (n1)(3/2)
= 1 + (3/2)n  3/2
= 1/2 + 3/2 n
= 1/2 (3n  1)
for the cost, you need the sum of the length of 12 poles
that is,
1 + 5/2 + 4 + 11/2 + 7 + .... + 35/2
= 6(first + last_
= 6(1 + 35/2) = 111 metres is your total length
each metre costs 45, so
just do 45*111 👍
