One NFTO logistics commander was tasked to deliver goods to an army camp in

Afghan during June 2014. The commander delivered 1000 tons of goods on 1st June,
1100 tons on 2nd June, etc. Each subsequent days delivery was 100 tons more than
the previous days delivery. After several days of delivery, due to more road attacks from
Bl Paeda, the commander had to change the plan so that each subsequent days delivery
was 100 tons less than the previous days delivery. By 15th June, the commander
managed to deliver a total of 21300 tons of goods for the past 15 days. On which day did
the commander deliver the most goods to the camp? How many tons of goods did he
deliver on this particular day?
