    :hello: PRIEST IN WELL :hello:
    Arithmetic Progression

    A temple priest in dawn, fell into the bottom of the
    huge agricultural well
    and during day he is able to climb up 10’
    but when it is dark
    he slips through nine’.
    In how many days,
    he would be out of the well?
    The well is 20’ deep.

    Day 1 - 10' - 9' = 1'
    Day 2 - 1+10 - 9 = 2'
    Day 3 - 2 + 10 - 9 = 3'
    and so on - on Day 9, he has reached 9'
    Day 10 - 9 + 10 - 9' = 10'
    Day 11 - 10' + 10 = 20' -> he is out

    so he will be out on day 11
    Where is the pat on my back ?
