Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:342 Step-by-step explanation:Let's see the difference is each successive values:232 - 217 = 15252 - 232 = 20277 - 252 = 25307 - 277 = 30As we can see, each month the increase is 5 more than previous months' increase. Clearly from the pattern we can surmise that the next month (August), it will increase by 35 from the value of July.Number of visitors in August = Number of Visitors in  July + 35 = 307 + 35 = 342
