(15) A contract on construction job specifies a penalty for delay for completion beyond a certain due date as follows. $200 for the first day, $250 for the second day, $300 for the third day etc., the penalty for each succeeding day being $50 more than for the preceding day. How much money the contractor has to pay as penalty,if he has delayed the work be 30 days. Solution

(16) A sum of $700 is to be used to seven cash prizes to students of a school for their overall academic performance. If each prize is $20 less than the preceding prize, find the value of each prizes. Solution

(17) In a school, students thought of planting trees in and around the school to reduce air pollution. It was decided that the number of trees, that each section of each class will plant, will be the same as the class, in each they are studying ,e.g, a section of class I will plant 1 tree, a section of class II will plant 2 trees and so on till class XII. There are three sections of each class. How many trees will be planted by the students? Solution

(18) A spiral is made up of successive semicircles,with centres alternately at A and B starting with center at A of radii 0.5, 1.0 cm, 1.5 cm ,2.0 cm ......... as shown in figure . What is the total length of spiral made up of thirteen consecutive semicircles. (∏ = 22/7) Solution
