It can be seen from the given question, that the incomes of Subba Rao increases every year by Rs.200 and hence, forms an AP. Therefore, after 1995, the salaries of each year are; 5000, 5200, 5400, … Here, first term, a = 5000 and common difference, d = 200 Let after nth year, his salary be Rs 7000. Therefore, by the nth term formula of AP, an = a+(n−1) d 7000 = 5000+(n−1)200 200(n−1)= 2000 (n−1) = 10 n = 11 Therefore, in 11th year, his salary will be Rs 7000.
