Bob trains for even number of hours for 7 days and then he continues at 14 hours a day.

Sum of first n even numbers is expressed as \(n*(n+1)\). Sum of hours from day 1 to day 7=\(7*(7+1)=56\) hours.

Sum of hours from 8 to 10 =\(14*3=28\) hours.

Total hours from day 1 to day 10=\(56+42=98\) hours.

Excluding 1st and 10th day, total sum of hours =\(98-(2+14)=82\) hours.

That is our answer.

IMO, Option B.

If you read the question carefully, it says that the training on 1st April is inclusive. Hence, we will have to include the 2 hours from there as well. And the total would come up to 84 hours. Therefore, the answer should be C.

Yeah, you're right. I missed the term inclusive and thought both to be exclusive. Thanks for pointing it out.

Hi Bunuel,

In the Question, Its nowhere mentioned that the Increment time is always a multiple of 2. Hence, the answer may vary depending on the Odd/even numbers we choose.

Please let me know if I am missing anything here??

1st to 6th = 2+4+6+8+10+12 = 42
7th to 9th = 14*3 = 42
so total
42+42 = 84 IMO C
