A:
Answer:The given statement is False statementExplanation:We are given that Jaime has blown out a number of candles equal to his age on each of his birthday till now and he is 9 years old now so the total number of candles blown by him all his life is given by thearithmetic series 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 and not the arithmetic series 0 + 1 + 2 + 3+ 4+ 5+ 6+ 7+ 9 as given so the given statement is false.
