Clara, a few things:

  1. the problem as stated is correct; you should view the solutions to see why;
  2. we've edited your note to remove the correct answer - we don't want to spoil the problem for others;
  3. if you have a dispute or disagreement with a problem in the future, you should submit a dispute, as then a notice will go directly to the problem author.

Looked for dispute/contact button. Was not on screen (using iPhone) problem asks for value of n. [edited out] is value of n (n+1). I agree with solution, just not with the question as worded "value of n". Thanks for your feedback.
