Roshani reads 1/6 hours on the first day 1/4 hours on the second day and 1/3 hours on the third day.if the pattern continues,how long will she read on 5thh day?please fast tomorrow is my exam!

On the first day Roshani reads 1/6 hours
On the second day she reads 1/4 hours
On the third day she reads 1/3 hours
So the pattern will be as  16, 14, 13,...
S, the given pattern shows an arithmetic progression in which common difference is given by;
d = 13-14 = 14-16 = 112
First term; a16 and for 5th day, n = 5
So, nth term = tn = a+n-1d
Then, 5th term = t5 =16+ 5-1×112 = 16+13 = 36 = 12
Therefore, on 5th day Roshni reads 12 hours.
