**Question. If Sn denotes the sum of first n terms of an AP, prove that S _{12} = 3(S_{8} – S_{4})**

**Solution.**We know that sum of n terms of an AP,

S

_{n}=n/2[2a + ( n – 1) d]

S

_{4}=4/2 [2a + (4 – 1)d]

= 2 [2a +3d] = 4a + 6d

S

_{8}=8/2[2a + (8 – 1)d]

= 4 [2a +7d] = 8a + 28d

(S8 – S4) = (8a + 28d) – (4a +6d)

= 8a + 28d – 4a – 6d

= 4a + 22d

S

_{12}=12/2 [2a + (12 – 1)d]

= 6 [2a +11d] = 12a + 66d

= 3 [4a + 22d]

S

_{12}= 3 [S8 – S4] [using equation (i)]

Hence proved.

**Question. If the sum of the first 6 terms of an AP is 36 and that of the first 16 terms is 256, find the sum of the first 10 terms.****Solution.** It is given that

S_{6 }= 36 and S_{16} = 256

Let a be the first term and d be the common difference of an AP.

We know that sum of n terms of an AP,

S_{n} =n/2[2a + (n – 1)d]

Now S6 = 36 (Given)

⇒ 6/2[2a + (6 – 1)d] = 36

⇒ 3 [2a + (6 – 1)d = 36

⇒ 2a + 5d = 12

Also, S_{16} = 256

⇒16/2[2a + (16 – 1)d] = 256

⇒ 8[2a + 15d] = 256

⇒ 2a + 15d = 32 …(ii)

Subtracting equation (i) from equation (ii), we get

(2a + 15d) – (2a + 5d) = 32 – 12

⇒ 2a + 15 – 2a – 5d = 20

⇒ 10d = 20

⇒ d = 2

Putting the value of d in equation (i), we get

2a + 5d = 12

2a + 5(2) = 12

⇒ 2a + 10 = 12

⇒ 2a = 2 ⇒ a = 1

We have to find sum of first 10 terms, S_{10} = ?

S_{10} =10/2[2a + (10 – 1)d]

= 5 [2(1) + 9(2)]

= 5 [2 + 18]

= 5 × 20

S_{10} = 100

Hence, the required sum of the first 10 terms is 100.

**Question. The sum of the first n terms of an AP whose first term is 8 and the common difference is 20 is equal to the sum of first 2n terms of another AP whose first term is -30 and the common difference is 8. Find n.****Solution.** It is given that

first term of first AP, a = 8

and common difference of first AP, d = 20

Let n be the number of terms in first AP.

We know that sum of first n terms of an AP,

S_{n} =n/2[2a + (n – 1)d]

=n/2[2 × 8 + (n – 1)20]

=n/2[16 + 20n – 20]

=n/2[20n – 4] = n[10n – 2]

⇒ S_{n} = n[10n – 2] …(i)

Now, first term of second AP (a’) = –30

Common difference of secod (d’) = 8

∴ Sum of first 2n terms of second AP

S_{2n} =2n/2 [2a’ + (2n – 1)d’]

= n[2(–30) + (2n –1)8]

= n[–60 + 16n – 8]

S_{2n} = n[16n – 68] …(ii)

By given condition,

Sum of first n terms of first AP

= sum of first 2_{n} terms of second AP

⇒ Sn = S_{2n}

Using equation (i) and equation (ii), we get

⇒ n(10n – 2) = n(16n – 68)

⇒ 10n – 2 – 16n + 68 = 0

⇒ –6n + 66 = 0

⇒ –6(n – 11) = 0

⇒ n = 11

Hence, the required value of n is 11.

**Question. If mth term of an A.P. is 1/ n and nth term is 1/m , find the sum of its first mn terms.****Solution.** Let, the first term of an A. P. be ‘a’ and its common difference be ‘d’.

Now, am = a + (m – 1)d

⇒ 1/n = a + (m – 1)d …(i) (given)

and a_{n} = a + (n – 1)d

⇒ 1/m = a + (n – 1)d …(ii) (given)

On subtracting eduation (ii) from (i), we get.

**Question. Find the sum of n terms of the series **

**Solution.** Given series is

**Question. For what value of n are the nth terms of two A.P.’s 63, 65, 67, …. and 3, 10, 17, ….. equal ?**

Ans. Given, APs are 63, 65, 67……. and 3, 10, 17……..

For first A.P., first term, a = 63 and common

difference, d = 2

Then, its nth term = 63 + (n – 1) × 2 …(i)

For second A.P., first term, a’ = 3 and common

difference, d’ = 7

Then, its nth term = 3 + (n − 1) × 7

According to the question:

63 + (n − 1) × 2 = 3 + (n − 1) × 7

(n − 10 × 5 = 60

n − 1 = 12

n = 13

The 13^{th} term of both given APs are equal.

**Question. The first term of an AP is -5 and the last term is 45. If the sum of the terms of the AP is 120, then find the number of terms and the common difference. ****Solution. **Let a be the first term, d be the common difference and n be the number of terms.

It is given that

first term, a = –5

Last term, L = 45

We know that, if the last term of an AP is

known, then the sum of n terms of an AP is

Sn =n /2 (a +l )

120 =n/2(-5 + 45)

120 × 2 = 40 × n

⇒ n = 6

L = a + (n – 1)d

⇒ 45 = –5 + (6 – 1)d

⇒ 50 = 5d ⇒ d = 10

Hence, number of terms = 6

and common difference = 10

**Question. Find the sum of the first 40 positive integers which give a remainder 1 when divided by 6.****Solution.** The numbers which when divided by 6 gives 1 as remainder are :

7, 13, 19, 25, 31, 37, …

They form an A.P., as their common difference

is the same, d = 6

Here: first term, a = 7, common difference, d = 6

Sum of first 40 positive integers:

S_{40} =n/2[2a + (n – 1)d]

=40/2[2 × 7 + (40 – 1) × 6]

= 20[14 + 39 × 6]

= 20 × 248

= 4,960

Hence, the sum of the first 40 positive integers is 4,960.

**Question. Divide 56 in four parts in A.P such that the ratio of the product of their extremes (1st and 4th) to the product of means (2nd and 3rd) is 5 : 6.****Solution.** Let the four parts of the A.P. are (a – 3d), (a – d), (a + d), (a + 3d)

Now, a – 3d + a – d + a + d + a + 3d = 56

⇒ 4a = 56

⇒ a = 14

According to question,

(a−3d)(a+3d)/(a-d)(a+d) = 5/6

⇒ (14 – 3d)(14 + 3d) / (14 – d) (14 + d) = 5/6 [Putting a = 14]

⇒ 196 – 9d2 / 196 – d^{2} = 5/6

⇒ 1176 – 54d^{2} = 980 – 5d^{2}

⇒ 49d^{2} = 196

⇒ d^{2} = 4 ⇒ d = ±2

when,

a = 14 and d = 2

The 4 parts are (a – 3d), (a – d), (a + d), (a + 3d), i.e., 8, 12, 16, 20.

when, a = 14 and d = –2

The 4 parts are 20, 16, 12 and 8.

**Question. If the sum of first m terms of an AP is the same as the sum of its first n terms, show that the sum of its first (m + n) terms is zero.****Solution.** Sm = Sn

⇒ = m/2[2a + (n − 1)d]

= n/2[2a + (n − 1)d]

⇒ 2a(m − n) + d(m^{2} − m − n^{2} + n) = 0

⇒ (m − n)[2a + (m + n − 1)d] = 0

or Sm + n = 0

**Question. How many terms of an A.P. 9, 17, 25,… must be taken to give a sum of 636? ****Solution.**

**Question. Among the natural numbers 1 to 49, find a number x, such that the sum of numbers preceding it is equal to sum of numbers succeeding it.****Solution.** Let, the number be x.

1, 2, 3, 4, …, x – 1, x, x + 1, … 49

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + … + x – 1 = x + 1 + … + 49

S_{x – 1} = S_{50} – S_{x}

⇒ ( x -1 )x /2 = 49 x 50/2 − (x+ 1)x/2

⇒ x^{2} – x = 2450 – x^{2} – x

⇒ x^{2} = 1225

⇒ x = ±35 (–35 is not between 1 to 49 therefore rejected)

x = 35.

**Question. The 14 ^{th} term of an AP is twice its 8th term. If its 6th term is -8, then find the sum of its first 20 terms.**

**Solution.**a

_{14}= 2a

_{8}

⇒ a + 13d = 2(a + 7d) ⇒ a = –d

a

_{6}= –8

⇒ a + 5d = –8

solving to get a = 2, d = –2

S

_{20}= 10(2a + 19d)

= 10(4 – 38)

= –340

**QQuestionuestion. The digits of a positive number of three digits are in A.P. and their sum is 15. The number obtained by reversing the digits is 594 less than the original number. Find the number.****Solution.** Let the required numbers in A.P. are (a – d), a, (a + d) respectively.

Now, a – d + a + a + d = 15

3a = 15 ⇒ a = 5

According to question, number is

100(a – d) + 10a + a + d = 111a – 99d

Number on reversing the digits is

100(a + d) + 10a + a – d = 111a + 99d

Now, as per given condition in question,

(111a – 99d) – (111a + 99d) = 594

⇒ –198d = 594 ⇒ d = –3

So, digits of number are [5 – (–3), 5, (5 + (–3)]

= 8, 5, 2

Required number is 111 × (5) – 99 × (– 3)

= 555 + 297 = 852

The number is 852.

**Question. The digits of a positive number of three digits are in A.P. and their sum is 15. The number obtained by reversing the digits is 594 less than the original number. Find the number.****Solution.**

**Question. Find the sum of first 24 terms of an A.P. whose n ^{th} term is given by a_{n} = 3 + 2_{n}.**

**Solution.**Given, nth term of an A.P., an = 3 + 2

_{n}

First term of A.P., a

_{1}= 3 + 2 × 1 = 5

Second term of A.P., a

_{2}= 3 + 2 × 2 = 7

third term of A.P., a

_{3}= 3 + 2 × 3 = 9

and 24th term of A.P., a

_{24}= 3 + 2 × 24 = 51

common difference of A.P., d = a

_{2}– a

_{1}= a

_{3}– a

_{2}

= 7 – 5 = 9 – 7 = 2

Sum of 24 terms, S24 = n /2 [2a+(n – 1)d]

Here, a = 5, n = 24, d = 2

S

_{24}=24/2[2 x 5 + (24 – 1) x2]

= 12 [10 + 46]

= 12 × 56 = 672

Hence the sum of first 24 terms of an A.P. is 676.

**Question. Determine the A.P. whose third term is 16 and the 7 ^{th} term exceeds the 5^{th} term by 12. **

**Solution.**Let, the first term of A.P. be ‘a’ and its common difference be ‘d’

Given, a

_{3}= 16

i.e. a + (3 – 1)d = 16 [∵ an = a + (n – 1)d]

⇒ a + 2d = 19 …(i)

And a7 = a

_{5}+ 12

⇒ a + (7 – 1)d = a + (5 – 1)d + 12

⇒ a + 6d = a + 4d + 12

⇒ 2d = 12

⇒ d = 2

If we put the value of ‘d’ in eduation (i), we get;

a + 2 × 2 = 16

⇒ a = 16 – 4 = 12

First term of AP = 12

Second term of AP = 12 + 2 = 14

Third term of AP = 14 + 2 = 16 and so on.

Hence, the required A.P is 12, 14, 16, 18, ….

**Question. The 26 ^{th}, 11^{th} and the last term of an AP are 0, 3 and -1/5 respectively. Find the common difference and the number of terms.**

**Solution.**It is given that:

26

^{th}term of AP, a26 = 0

11

^{th}term of AP, a11 = 3

Last term, L =-1/5

Let the AP contain n term, last term (L) is the n

^{th}term.

Let first term be a and common difference be d of an AP.

We know that

an = a + (n – 1)d

Also, a

_{26}= 0 [Given]

⇒ a

_{26}= a + (26 – 1)d

⇒ 0 = a + 25d

⇒ a + 25d = 0

Also, a11 = 3

⇒ a + (11 – 1) d = 3

⇒ a + 10d = 3

Last term L = -1/5

a + (n – 1) d = -1/5

Subtracting equation (ii) from equation (i), we get

⇒ (a + 25d) – (a + 10d) = 0 – 3

⇒ a + 25d – a – 10d = 0 – 3

⇒ 15d = –3

⇒ d = -3/15 = -1/15

Putting the value of d in equation (i)

⇒ a + 25(-1/5) = 0

⇒ a – 5 = 0

⇒ a = 5

Putting the value of a and d in equation (iii)

⇒ a + (n – 1) d = -1/5

⇒ 5 + (n – 1) (-1/5) =-1/5

⇒ 25 – (n – 1) = –1

⇒ 25 + 1 = (n – 1)

⇒ n = 27

Hence, the common difference =-1/5 and number of terms = 27.

**Question. If the sum of the first 7 terms of an A.P. is 49 and that of its first 17 terms is 288, find the sum of first n terms of the A.P. ****Solution.** Let the first term of an A.P be ‘a’ and its common difference be ‘d’.

given: S_{7} = 49

and S_{17} = 289

Then, S_{7} = 7/2[2a + (7 – 1) × d]

[∵ S_{n} = n/2[2a + (n -1 )d]

⇒ 49 = 72[2a + 6d]

⇒ 7 = a + 3d …(i)

and S_{17} = 17/2[2a + (17 – 1) × d]

⇒ 289 = 172× [2a + 16 × d]

⇒ 17 = a + 8d …(ii)

On subtracting equation (i) from equation (ii), we get:

a + 8d = 17 89

If we put the value of ‘d’ in equation (i), we get

a + 3 × (2) = 7

⇒ a = 7 – 6 = 1

Sum of the first ‘n’ terms,

S_{n} =n^{2}[2a + (n – 1)d]

=n^{2}[2 + (n – 1) × 2]

=n^{2}[2 + 2n – 2]

= n^{2}

Hence, the sum of the first ‘n’ terms is n^{2}.

**Question. The sum of four consecutive number in AP is 32 and the ratio of the product of the first and last terms to the product of two middle term is 7 : 15. Find the numbers.****Solution.** Let ‘a’ be the first term and ‘d’ be the common

difference to the AP. then,

a – 3d, a – d, a + d, a + 3d,

are four consecutive terms of the AP.

As per the question,

(a – 3d) + (a – d) + (a + d) + (a + 3d) = 32

⇒ 4a = 32, or a = 8 …(i)

and (a – 3d)(a+3d)/(a – d)(a + d) = 7/15

⇒ a2 – 9d^{2} / a^{2} – d^{2} = 7/15

⇒ 15a^{2} – 135d^{2} = 7a^{2} – 7d^{2}

⇒ 8a2 = 128 d^{2}

⇒ sing (i), we have:

8 × 82 = 128 d^{2}

⇒ d^{2} = 4, or d = ± 2

Thus, the four numbers are 2, 6, 10 and 14

**Question. Solve : 1 + 4 + 7 + 10 + …. + x = 287.****Solution.** In the given AP, a = 1 and d = 3.

Let AP contains ‘n’ terms. Then, an = x

⇒ a + (n – 1)d = x

⇒ 1 + 3(n – 1) = x

⇒ n = x + 2/3

Further, Sn =n/2[first term + last term]

⇒ 287 = x + 2/3 x 2 [1 + x]

⇒ (x + 1) (x + 2) = 1722

or x^{2} + 3x – 1720 = 0

⇒ x^{2} + 43x – 40x – 1720 = 0

⇒ x(x + 43) – 40(x + 43) = 0

⇒ (x + 43) (x – 40) = 0

⇒ x – 40 = 0 (∵ x + 43 ≠ 0)

⇒ x = 40.

Thus, x = 40.

**Question. The sum of the first 5 terms of an AP and the sum of the first 7 terms of the same AP is 167. If the sum of the first 10 terms of this AP is 235, find the sum of its first 20 terms.****Solution.** Let a be the first term, d be the common difference and n be the number of terms of an AP.

We know that

S_{n} =n/2[2a + (n – 1)d]

Sum of first five terms, S5

S_{5} =5/2[2a + (5 – 1)d] =5/2[2a + 4d]

S_{5} = 5[a + 2d]

S_{5} = 5a + 10d …(i)

Sum of first seven terms, S7

S_{7} =7/2[2a + (7 – 1)d]

= 7/2[2a + 6d]

S_{7} = 7[a + 3d]

S_{7} = 7a + 21d …(ii)

Now, by given condition

S_{5} + S7 = 167

⇒ 5a + 10d + 7a + 21d = 167

[using equation (i) & equation (ii)]

⇒ 12a + 31d = 167 …(iii)

Also, it is given that sum of first 10 terms of this AP is 235.

⇒ S_{10} = 235

⇒10/2[2a + (10 – 1)d] = 235

⇒ 5[2a + 9d] = 235

⇒ 2a + 9d = 235/5 = 47

⇒ 2a + 9d = 47 …(iv)

Multiplying equation (iv) by 6 and subtracting

it from equation (iii), we get

(12a + 31d) – (12a + 54d) = 167 – 282

⇒ 23d = 115 ⇒ d = 5

Putting the value of d in equation (4), we get

2a + 9d = 47

⇒ 2a + 9(5) = 47

⇒ 2a + 45 = 47

⇒ 2a = 2 ⇒ a = 1

Sum of first 20 terms of this AP,

S_{20} =20/2[2a + (20 – 1)d]

= 10[2(1) + 19(5)]

= 10[2 + 95]

= 10 × 97

= 970

Hence, the required sum of first 20 terms is 970.

Find the:****(A) sum of those integers between 1 and 500 which are multiples of 2 as well as of 5. ****(B) sum of those integers from 1 to 500 which are multiples of 2 as well as of 5.****(C) sum of those integers from 1 to 500 which are multiples of 2 or 5.****[Hint (iii): These numbers will be: multiple of****2 + multiple of 5 – multiples of 2 as well as of 5]****Solution.** (A) Multiples of 2 and 5 will be multiples of

LCM of 2 and 5. LCM of ( 2, 5) = 10

Multiples of 2 as well as 5 between 1 and

500 is 10, 20, 30, 40, …490

this forms an AP with first term, a= 10

Common difference, d = 20 – 10 = 10

Last term, L = 490

We know that sum of n terms between 1 and 500 is

S_{n} = n/2[a + L]

Also, L = a + (n – 1) d

⇒ 490 = 10 + (n – 1)10

⇒ 480 = (n – 1)10

⇒ (n – 1) = 48

⇒ n = 49

Putting this value in equation (i), we get

S_{49} =49/2[10 + 490]

=49/2× 500 = 49/2× 250= 12250

⇒ S_{49} = 12250

(B) Here, multiples of 2 as well as 5 from 1 to

500 are 10, 20, 30, …500

Here, first term, a = 10

common difference, d = 20 – 10 = 10

Last term, L = 500

We know that an = a + (n – 1)d

L = a + (n – 1)d

[Where, n is total no. of terms]

500 = 10 + (n – 1)d

490 = (n – 1)10

⇒ (n – 1) = 49 ⇒ n = 50

Also we know that Sn =n/2(a + L)

⇒ S_{50} = 50/2(10 + 500)

= 25 × 510 = 12750

Hence, S50 = 12750

⇒ (n_{1} – 1) = 249 ⇒ n_{1} = 250

Sum of [2, 4, 6, … 500]

Let n^{2} be the number of terms of second

list. We know that an = a + (n – 1)d

L’ = a’ + (n_{2} – 1) d’

500 = 5 + (n_{2} – 1)5

⇒ 495 = (n2 – 1)5

⇒ n_{2} – 1 = 99

⇒ n_{2} = 100

Sum of 2nd List,

Let n3 be the number of terms, then

L’’ = a’’ + (n3 – 1) d’’

500 = 10 + (n3 – 1)(10)

490 = (n3 – 1)10

⇒ n_{3} – 1 = 49

⇒ n_{3} = 50

**Question. Find the sum of the following series :****5 + (– 41) + 9 + (– 39) + 13 + (– 37) + 17 + …. + (– 5) + 81 + (– 3)****Solution.** Given: series is:

5 + (– 41) + 9 + (– 39) + 13 + (– 37) + 17 +

(– 5) + 81 + (– 3)

= [5 + 9 + 13 + … + 81) + [(– 41) + (– 39) +

(– 37) + (– 5) + (– 3)]

Here are the two series:

1. 5 + 9 + 13 + …… + 81

2. (– 41) + (– 39) + (– 37) + …. + (– 3)

For the first series :

first term a = 5, common difference, d = 9 – 5

= 13 – 9 = 4

last term, l(an) = 81

Then, an = a + (n – 1)d [where ‘n’ is the number of terms

81 = 5 + (n – 1) × 4

⇒ (n – 1) = 76/4 = 19

⇒ n = 20

Sum of the first series, S20

S_{20}= 20/2[2 × 5 + (20 − 1) × 4 ]

= 10(10 + 19 × 4)

= 10(10 + 76)

= 860

For the second series :

first term, a′ = – 41,

common difference, d′ = (– 39) – (– 41)

= (– 37) – (– 39)

= 2

last term, l′(an) = – 3

Then, an′ = a′ + (n′ – 1)d′

[where n′ are the number of terms]

⇒ – 3 = – 41 + (n′ – 1) × 2

⇒ (n′ – 1) = 19

⇒ n′ = 20

Sum of the second series, S′20 =n'[2d’ + (n’ – 1)d’]

=20/2[2 × (− 4 1) + (19) × 2]

= 10[– 82 + 38]

= 10 × (– 44)

= – 440

Total sum = S_{20} + S_{′20}

= 860 – 440 = 420

Hence, the total sum of series is 420.

**Question. An AP consists of 37 terms. The sum of the 3 middle most terms is 225 and the sum of the last 3 is 429. Find the AP.****Solution.** It is given that

Total number of terms, n = 37

Since n is odd, therefore

middle most term =(n + 1)/2 th term = 19th term 3 middle most terms = 18th, 19th and 20th term by given condition

a_{18} + a_{19} +a_{20} = 225

We know that an = a + (n – 1) d

⇒ (a + 17d) + (a + 18d) + (a + 19d) = 225

⇒ 3a + 54d = 225

⇒ a + 18d = 75 …(i)

Also, it is given that sum of last 3 terms = 429

⇒ a_{35} + a_{36} + a_{37} = 429

⇒ (a + 34d) + (a + 35d) + (a + 36d) = 429

⇒ 3a + 105d = 429

⇒ a + 35d = 143 …(ii)

Subtracting equation (i) from equation (ii), we get

(a + 35d) – (a + 18d) = 143 – 75

a + 35d – a – 18d = 68

⇒ 17d = 68 ⇒ d = 4

Putting value of d in equation (i), we get

a + 18(4) = 75

⇒ a + 72 = 75

⇒ a = 3, d = 4

Required AP is

a, a + d, a + 2d, a + 3d, …

3, 3 + 4, 3 + 2(4), 3 + 3(4), …

3, 7, 11, 15, …

**Question. If the sum of the first ‘p’ terms of an A.P. is ‘q’ and sum of the first ‘q’ terms is ‘p’; then show that the sum of the first (p + q) terms is {(– (p + q)}.****Solution.** Consider an A.P., whose first term be ‘a’ and common difference be ‘d’.

Given, Sp terms = q

Sq terms = p

To prove : Sp + q = – (p + q)

Proof : SP = p/2[2a + (p – 1)d] = q

or 2a + (p – 1)d =2q/p

and sq = q/2[2a + (q – 1)d] = p

or 2a + (q – 1)d = 2p/q

On subtracting equation (ii) from (i), we get

[(p – 1) – (q – 1)]d = 2q /2 -2p/p

**Question. Which term of the Arithmetic Progression – 7, – 12, – 17, – 22, … will be –82? Is –100 any term of the A.P.? Give reason for your answer.****Solution.** The first term of the A.P., a = – 7

Common difference,

d = (– 12) – (– 7) = (–12 + 7)

= – 5

Let the nth term of A.P. be – 82.

Then, an = – 82

a + (n – 1) d = – 82

⇒ – 7 + (n – 1) (– 5) = – 82

⇒ – 7 – 5n + 5 = – 82

⇒ – 5n = – 80

⇒ n = 16

Let, mth term of the given A.P. be – 100

am = – 100

a + (m – 1) d = – 100

⇒ – 7 + (m – 1) (– 5) = – 100

⇒ (m – 1) 5 = 93

⇒ m =93/5+ 1=98/5∉ N

Therefore, – 100 is not any term of the given A.P.

Hence, – 82 is the 16th term of the A.P. and – 100 is not a term of the given A.P.

**Question. How many terms of the arithmetic progression 45, 39, 33, … must be taken so that their sum is 180? Explain the double answer.****Solution. **Given: The arithmetic progression is 45, 39, 33, ……

Here, a = 45

d = 39 – 45 = 33 – 39 = ……..

= – 6

and the sum the of nth term, Sn = 180

Sn =n/2[2a + (n – 1)d]

where, n is the number of terms.

180 =n/2[2 × 45 + (n – 1) (– 6)]

⇒ 360 = 96n – 6n2

⇒ 6n2 – 96n + 360 = 0

⇒ 6[n2 − 16n + 60] = 0

⇒ 6(n2 − 10n − n + 60] = 0

⇒ 6(n(n(n − 10) − 6(n − 10)] = 0

⇒ 6[(n – 6) (n – 10)] = 0

⇒ n = 6, 10

Sum of a7, a8, a9 and a10 terms = 0

Hence, on either adding 6 terms or 10 terms we get a total of 180.

**Question. Show that the sum of an AP whose 1st term is a, the 2nd turn is b and the last term c, is equal to****(a + c) (b + c -2a)/2(b – a)****Solution.** It is given that

First term, a1 = a

Second term, a2 = b

Last term, L = c

Common difference = b – a

AP is a, b, …c

Let n be the number of terms of the given AP.

We know that an = a + (n – 1)d

⇒ L = a + (n – 1)(b – a)

⇒ c = a + (n – 1)(b – a)

⇒ (c – a) = (n – 1)(b – a)

⇒ (n – 1) = (c – )/(b – a)

⇒ n = c – a /b – a + 1 (c – a) +(b – a)/b – a

= c + b -2a/b – a

Now, we know that sum of an AP

**Question. If the sum of the first four terms of an AP is 40 and that of the first 14 terms is 280, find the sum of its first ‘n’ terms.****Solution.** Let the first term of the A.P. be ‘a’ and common difference be ‘d’.

Then, sum of ‘n’ terms, Sn =n/2[2a + (n – 1)d]

where, ‘n’ is the number of terms.

According to the Question:

Given, S4 = 40

⇒ 4/2[2a + (4 – 1) × d)] = 40

⇒ 2a + 3d = 20

and S_{14} = 280

⇒ 14/2 [2a + 13d] = 280

⇒ 2a + 13d = 40

On subtracting equation (i) from equation (ii), we get:

Put the value of ‘d’ in equation (i),

⇒ a =20 – 3 x 2/2 =7

Sum of n terms = n/2[2 × 7 + (n – 1) × 2]

= n/2[14 + 2 (n – 1)]

= n[7 + n – 1]

= n(n + 6) or n^{2} + 6n

Hence, the sum of first ‘n’ terms is n(n + 6) or n^{2} + 6n.

**Question. Find the sum of the integers between 100 and 200 that are:****(A) divisible by 9****(B) not divisible by 9****Solution.** (A) Integers between 100 and 200 that are divisible by 9 are 108, 117, 126, …198

Let n be the number of terms between 100 and 200

Here, first term, a = 108

Common difference, d = 117 – 108 = 9

Last term, L = 198

We know that an = a + (n – 1)d

L = a + (n – 1)d

⇒ 198 = 108 + (n – 1)9

⇒ 198 – 108 = (n – 1)9

⇒ 90 = (n – 1)9

⇒ (n – 1) = 10 ⇒ n = 11

Sum of n terms, Sn =n/2[2a + (n – 1)d]

∴ Sum of 11 terms between 100 and 200 which is divisible by 9 is

S_{n} =n/2[2a + (n – 1)d]

⇒ S_{11} =11/2[2(108) + (11 – 1)(9)]

=11/2[2(108) + 10 × 9]

= 11 [108 + 5 × 9]

= 11 [108 + 45]

= 11× 153 = 1683

Hence, the required sum of integers is 1683.

(B) Sum of integers between 100 and 200 which is not divisible by 9 = sum of total no. between 100 and 200 –

sum of no. between 100 and 200 which are divisible by 9 …(i)

From part (i), we know that sum of no.

between 100 and 200 divisible by 9 = 1683

Total numbers between 100 and 200 is

101, 102, 103, … 199.

Here, first term, a = 101

Common difference, d = 102 – 101 = 1

Last term, L = 199

Let n be total no. of terms.

We know that an = a + (n – 1)d

⇒ L = a + (n – 1)d

199 = 101 + (n – 1)(1)

199 – 101 = (n – 1)

n = 99

∴ Sum of 99 terms between 100 and 200

S_{n} =n/2[2a + (n – 1)d]

S_{99} =99/2[2(101) + (99 – 1)(1)]

=99/2[202 + 98

=99/2× 300

S_{99} = 99 × 150 = 14850

Putting this value in equation (i), we get

sum of no. between 100 and 200 not divisible by 9

= 14850 – 1683

= 13167

Hence, the required sum is 13167.

**Question. The sum of the 4 ^{th} and the 8^{th} terms of an AP is 24 and the sum of the 6th and the 10^{th} terms is 44. Find the sum of the first 10 terms of the AP.**

**Solution.**Let the first term of A.P. be ‘a’and its common

difference be ‘d‘.

Given, a4 + a8 = 24

⇒ a + 3d + a + 7d = 24 [∵an = a + (n – 1)d]

⇒ 2a + 10d = 24

or a + 5d = 12 …(i)

and a6 + a10 = 44 (given)

⇒ a + 5d + a + 9d = 44

⇒ 2a + 14d = 44

or a + 7d = 22 …(ii)

on subtracting eduation (i) from (ii), we get

**Question. If the ratio of the 11th term of an AP to its 18th term is 2 : 3, find the ratio of the sum of the first five terms to the sum of its first 10 terms. ****Solution.** Let, the first term of A.P. be ‘a’ and its common

difference be ‘d’.

Then, 11th term of A.P., a11 = a + 10d

18th term of A.P., a18 = a + 17d

a +10d /a + 17d 2/3

⇒ 3(a + 10d) = 2(a + 7d)

⇒ 3a + 30d = 2a + 34d

⇒ a = 4d …(i)

Now, sum of first five terms,

S5 = n/2[2a + (n – 1)d]

=5/2[2 × 4d + 4 × d] [from (i)]

=5/2× 12d = 30d

Sum of first 10 terms,

S10 = n/2[2a + (n – 1)d]

=10/2[2 × 4d + 9 × d]

= 5(8d + 9d)

= 85d

S5/S10 = 30d/85d = 6/17

Hence, the required ratio is 6 : 17.

**Question. A thief runs with a uniform speed of 100 m/ minute. After one minute a policeman after the thief to catch him. He goes with a speed of 100 m/minute in the first minute and increases his speed by 10 m/minute every succeeding minute. After how many minutes the policeman will catch the thief? ****Solution.** Let, the total time to catch the thief be ‘n’ minutes.

speed of thief = 100 m/min.

Total distance covered by the thief = (100 n)

Here, the speed of the policeman in the first minute is 100 m/min, in the 2nd minute is 110 m/min, in the 3rd minute is 120 m/min and so on.

Then, the speed forms an A.P. with a constant

increasing speed of 10 m/min. thus, the series is :

100, 110, 120, 130

As the policeman starts after a minute (n – 1) Total distance covered by the policeman

= 100 + 110 + 120 + … (n – 1) terms

100n = n – 1/2 [200 + (n – 2) × 10

[∴sn = n/2 [2a + (n- 1)]d]

⇒ 200n = n – 1[200 + 10n – 20]

⇒ 200n = (n – 1) (180 + 10n)

⇒ 200n = 180n – 180 + 10n2 – 10n

⇒ 10n^{2} – 30n – 180 = 0

⇒ n^{2} – 3n – 18 = 0

⇒ (n – 6) (n + 3) = 0

⇒ n = 6 [∵ n = – 3, is not possible]

Hence, the police’man takes (n – 1) = 5 minutes to catch the theif.

**Question. If the ratio of the sum of the first n terms of two A.Ps is (7n + 1) : (4n + 27), then find the ratio of their 9 ^{th} terms. **

**Solution.**

**Question. The ratio of the sums of first m and first n terms of an A.P. is m ^{2} : n^{2}. Show that the ratio of its mth and nth terms is (2m – 1):(2n – 1).**

**Solution.**Let, ‘a’ be the first term an A.P. and ‘d’ be the common difference.

Let, Sm and Sn be the sum of the first ‘m’ and first ‘n’ of terms of the A.P. respectively.

**Question. Solve the equation –4 + (–1) + 2 + … + x = 437.****Solution.** The given equation is –4 + (–1) + 2 + … + x = 437

The given equation is A.P.

with first term, a = –4

and common difference,

d = (–1) – (–4) = –1 + 4 = 3

Last term, L = x

We know that an = a + (n – 1)d

⇒ L = x = a + (n – 1)(d)

⇒ x = –4 + (n – 1)(3)

⇒ x = –4 + 3n – 3

⇒ n = x + 7/3

Also, we know that

S_{n} =n/2[2a + (n – 1)d]
