A gardener needs to spread 1500 kg of sand over his garden. He spreads 5 kg during the first day, and increases the amount he spreads each subsequent day by 2 kg.

(i) (ii)

Find an expression for the mass of sand the gardener has spread by the end of the nth day. [2] Deduce the minimum number of days required for him to spread the 1500 kg of sand. [3]

The gardener’s neighbour also needs to spread 1500 kg of sand over his garden. He decides to spread 75 kg each day, but discovers that during each subsequent day, the amount of sand he can spread is 5% less than that of the previous day.

(iii) (iv)

Find an expression for the mass of sand the neighbour has spread by the end of the nth day. [2] Comment on the practicality of the approach taken by the neighbour. [1]
