Question 4 Code: 9709/13/M/J/19/5, Topic: Series

Two heavyweight boxers decide that they would be more successful if they competed in a lower weight class. For each boxer this would require a total weight loss of $13 \mathrm{~kg}$. At the end of week 1 they have each recorded a weight loss of $1 \mathrm{~kg}$ and they both find that in each of the following weeks their weight loss is slightly less than the week before.

Boxer $A$ 's weight loss in week 2 is $0.98 \mathrm{~kg}$. It is given that his weekly weight loss follows an arithmetic progression.

$\text{(i)}$ Write down an expression for his total weight loss after $x$ weeks. $[1]$

$\text{(ii)}$ He reaches his $13 \mathrm{~kg}$ target during week $n$. Use your answer to part $\text{(i)}$ to find the value of $n$. Boxer $B$ 's weight loss in week 2 is $0.92 \mathrm{~kg}$ and it is given that his weekly weight loss follows a geometric progression. $[2]$

$\text{(iii)}$ Calculate his total weight loss after 20 weeks and show that he can never reach his target. $[4]$
