Expert's answer
Here we have the arithmetic progression.
The general formula is: a_n=a_1+(n-1)d.
As the second row has 2 more seats then the first we can write that d=2.
 The thirteenth row has a_30=a_1+(30-1)d=10+29*2=68 seats.
So in the auditorium are a_1+a_2+...+a_30 seats, or
 
 a_1+a_1+d+a_1+2d+a_1+3d+...a_1+29d=30*a_1+sum_(n=0)^(29)[n*d]=300+870=1170.

1170 seats
