Do you agree that this is the 15 years flow:
Code:
         First 8 years         :           Last 7 years
1     2            7      8        9    10           14       15
6400 6640 ... 7840 8080  9500 9860 .... 11300 11660
If so, where are you stuck?
Were you instructed to use the "sum of arithmetic series" formula?
