# Thread: Sequences and Series question

1. ## Sequences and Series question

1. A truck spends several days depositing truckloads of gravel from a quarry at equally spaced intervals along a straight road. The first load is deposited 20 km from the quarry. the last 10km further along the road. If the truck travels 550 km during the day, how many trips does it make and how far apart are the deposits?

The first load is deposited 20 km from the quarry. the last 10km further along the road.

And out of curiosity, are you home schooled?

I believe it means that the first load is deposited 20km from the quarry and the last load is deposited 30km from the quarry in the same direction.

i.e. there is a 10km distance between the first and last loads.
