Question

# Makya was conducting a physics experiment. He rolled a ball down a ramp and calculated the distance covered by the

ball at different times. The ball rolled a distance of 1 foot during the first second, 3 feet during the next second, and so on. If the distances the ball rolled down the ramp each second form an arithmetic sequence, determine the distance the ball rolled down during the fifteenth second.

The general expression for noth term in arithmetic

sequence is given by

an = at (n- 1)d

where a is the Ist term of the sequence

d is the common

difference

In our problem

an is the distance…
