Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Sequences and Series - Question 1

### If 1, log9 (31–x + 2), log3 (4.3x – 1) are in A.P. then x equals [2002]

Detailed Solution for Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Sequences and Series - Question 1

(b) 1, log9 (31 – x + 2), log3 (4.3x – 1) are in A.P.
⇒ 2 log9  (31– x+2) = 1 + log3 (4.3x – 1) ⇒ log3 (31 – x + 2) = log33 + log3 (4.3x – 1)
⇒ log3 (31– x + 2) = log3 [3(4 × 3x – 1)] ⇒ 31– x + 2 = 3 (4.3x – 1) ⇒ 3.3–x + 2 = 12.3x – 3.
Put 3x = t

=

Hence or  x = log33 – log3 4

⇒ x = 1 – log34

Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Sequences and Series - Question 2

### l, m, n are the pth, qth and rth term of a G. P. all positive, then   equals[2002]

Detailed Solution for Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Sequences and Series - Question 2

l = ARp –1 ⇒ log l = log A + (p – 1) log R
m = ARq –1 ⇒ log m = log A + (q – 1) log R
n = ARr –1 ⇒ log n = log A + (r – 1) log R
Now,

Operating  C1 - ( log R ) C2 + ( log R- logA) C3

Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Sequences and Series - Question 3

### The value of 21/4. 41/8. 81/16   ... ∞ is [2002]

Detailed Solution for Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Sequences and Series - Question 3

Let a = first term of G.P. and  r = common ratio of G.P.; Then G.P. is a, ar, ar2

Given

Also

a2 = 100(1 – r)(1 + r)... (ii)
From (i), a2 = 400(1 – r)2;
From (ii), we get 100(1 – r)(1 + r) = 400(1 – r)2
⇒ 1 + r = 4 – 4r
⇒ 5r = 3 ⇒ r = 3/5.

Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Sequences and Series - Question 21

A person is to count 4500 currency notes. Let an denote the number of notes he counts in the nth minute. If a1 = a2 = ... = a10 = 150 and a10, a11, ... are in an AP with common difference –2, then the time taken by him to count all notes is [2010]

Detailed Solution for Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Sequences and Series - Question 21

Till 10th minute number of counted notes = 1500

n2 - 149n + 3000= 0

⇒ n = 125, 24

But n = 125 is not possible

∴ total time = 24 + 10 = 34 minutes.

Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Sequences and Series - Question 22

A man saves 200 in each of the first three months of his service. In each of the subsequent months his saving increases by 40 more than the saving of immediately previous month. His total saving from the start of service will be 11040 after [2011]

Detailed Solution for Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Sequences and Series - Question 22

Let required number of months = n

∴ 200 × 3 + (240 + 280 + 320 + ... +  (n – 3)th term) = 11040

⇒ (n - 3)[240 + 20n - 80]= 10440

⇒ (n - 3)(20n + 160)= 10440

⇒ (n - 3)(n + 8)= 522

⇒ n2 + 5n - 546=0

⇒  (n + 26) (n – 21) = 0

∴ n = 21

Test: 35 Year JEE Previous Year Questions: Sequences and Series - Question 23

Statement-1: The sum of the series 1 + (1 + 2 + 4) +  (4 + 6 + 9) + (9 + 12 + 16) + .... + (361 + 380 + 400) is 8000

Statement-2:    for any natural number n. [2012]
