1. The entire amount will be paid in 900 installments.

Step-by-step explanation:

• Step 1: Given first installment = Rs 800. Each installment is 50 more than the former. So this forms an arithmetic progression and the last term is 45750 when the loan is repaid.

⇒ 800, 850, 900, …..45750

So a = 800, d = 50 and a(n) = 45750

• Find number of installments, n using the equation for last term, a(n) = a + (n-1)d

⇒ 45750 = 800 + (n – 1)50

⇒ 44950 = 50n – 50

⇒ 50n = 45000

n = 900

2. An equation can be set up as: 45,750 = 50x + 800

x representing each installment

We can simplify this by subtracting 800 and dividing by 50:

44,950 = 50x

899 = x
