Thanks, tertre....If we want  the sum over all 10 weeks........

 

First week  =  $4

The common difference is 13

Last week  =  4 + 13(9)  =  $121

 

So....the sum is

 

[ First week + Last week ]  *   [ Number of weeks  ] / 2  =

 

[ 4 + 121 ] *  [ 10 ] / 2  =

 

125  [ 5 ]   =

 

$625

 

 

cool cool cool
