#### Solution

The first installment of the loan is Rs 100.

The second installment of the loan is Rs 105 and so on.

The amount that the man repays every month forms an A.P.

The A.P. is 100, 105, 110, …

First term, *a* = 100

Common difference, *d* = 5

A_{30} = *a* + (30 – 1)*d*

= 100 + (29) (5)

= 100 + 145

= 245

Thus, the amount to be paid in the 30^{th} installment is Rs 245.
