    60, 68, 76, 84, ...

    a_n = 4 (2 n + 13) 

    a20 = 212 

    There are 212 seats in the 20th row,

    Here we have the sequence: 60, 68, 76,...

    i.e. arithmetic sequence with 1st term 60 and common difference 8

    so, nth term is 8n + 52....where n is the row number

    Hence, in row 20 we have 8(20) + 52 => 212 seats

    the function is 52 + 8 x , where x = row number
