# A carpenter was h

Answer :

Let the carpenter take n days to finish the job.

To Find: n

He builds 5 frames on day 1, 7 on day 2, 9 on day 3 and so on.

So it forms an AP 5, 7, 9, 11,… and so on.

We need to find the number of terms in this AP such that the sum of the AP will be equal to 192

Given: Sum of AP = 192

n(n + 8) = 192 × 2 = 16 × 24
n = 16

He finishes the job in 16 days.
