```							The clock strikes once at 1 o'clock,twice at 2 o'clock and so on.[1 day = 24 hours] clock has 12 hours so we have to multiply the series by 2 to make it 24 hours. 2 [1 + 2 + 3 + ............ + 12] Sn=n /2 [ a + L ]Here, a = 1, n = 12, L = 12 S12 = 2 x (n/2) [a+L]S12= 2 x (12/2) [1+12]S12 = 12 × 13S12 = 156 Hence, the clock will strike 156 times in a day.

```							The answer os the question would be © 156 timesThe clock strikes once at 1o’ clock, twice at 2o’ clock and so on. So, the number of times the clock will strike in 12 hrs will be:1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12 = 78 times.Since the question is asked for 24 hrs you have to multiply this sum by 2 as it continues again from 1 to 12.Hence the answer would be 78*2 = 156 times.
