Solution

Number of seats in the first row = 20

a = 20

Increase in the number of seats in consecutive rows = 2

d = 2

To find the number of seats in the 25th row, find t25

tn = a + (n – 1)d ... (Formula)

∴ t25 = 20 + (25 – 1) x 2 ... (Substituting the values)

        = 20 + (24 x 2)

        = 20+48

∴ t25 = 68

Thus, the number of seats in the twenty-fifth row is 68.
