It can be seen from the given question, that the incomes of Subba Rao increases every year by Rs.200 and hence, forms an AP.

Therefore, after 1995, the salaries of each year are;

5000, 5200, 5400, â€¦

Here,Â first term,

aÂ = 5000and common difference, dÂ = 200Let afterÂ

n^{th}Â year, his salary be Rs 7000.Therefore, by the n

^{th}term formula of AP,aÂ =Â_{n}a+(nâˆ’1)Âd7000 = 5000+(

nâˆ’1)200200(

nâˆ’1)= 2000(

nâˆ’1) = 10nÂ = 11Therefore, in 11th year, his salary will be Rs 7000.
