Given in the pattern of apples arranged,
1st row = 1 apple, 2nd row = 2 apples, 3rd row = 3 apples and 4th row = 4 apples and so on.
So, this can be expressed as 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + …
We know that sum of numbers from 1 to n is .
A. We have to find the total number of apples in 10 rows.
Here n = 10.
∴ Number of apples in 10 rows = = = 55 apples
B. We have to find the total number of apples in 20 rows.
Here n = 20.
∴ Number of apples in 20 rows = = = 210 apples
Here, the series starts with 1 and the sum of every subsequent term is the sum of previous two. (Fibonacci series)
