Solution

Let n be the time in which the man saved Rs 200.
Here, d= 4, a = 32
We know:

\[S_n = \frac{n}{2}\left\{ 2a + \left( n - 1 \right)d \right\}\]

\[ \Rightarrow 200 = \frac{n}{2}\left\{ 2 \times 32 + \left( n - 1 \right)4 \right\}\]

\[ \Rightarrow 400 = 64n + 4 n^2 - 4n\]

\[ \Rightarrow 4 n^2 + 60n - 400 = 0\]

\[ \Rightarrow n^2 + 15n - 100 = 0\]

\[ \Rightarrow n^2 + 20n - 5n - 100 = 0\]

\[ \Rightarrow \left( n + 20 \right)\left( n - 5 \right) = 0\]

\[ \Rightarrow n = 5, n = - 20 \left( \text  { Rejecting the negative value } \right)\]

Therefore, the man took 5 years to save Rs 200.
