QUESTION: 1

Solution:
QUESTION: 2

Solution:
QUESTION: 3

### The sum of all 2-digit odd positive numbers is :

Solution:

Here a = 11 and d = 2, tn= 99, n = ?
Sum of the n terms = (n/2)[2a+(n -1)d]
But tn = a + (n -1)d
⇒ 99 = 11+ (n-1)2
⇒ 99 -11 = (n-1)2
⇒ 88/2 = (n-1)
∴ n = 45.
subsitute n = 45  in sum of the n terms we obtain
⇒ s45 = (45/2)(2×11 + (45 -1)2)
⇒ s45 = (45/2)(110)
⇒ s45 = 45×55.
⇒  s45 = 2475.
∴ sum of all two digit odd positive numbers = 2475.

QUESTION: 4

The fourth term of an A.P. is 4. Then the sum of the first 7 terms is :

Solution: QUESTION: 5

In an A.P., s1 = 6, s7 = 105, then sn : sn-3 is same as :

Solution:
QUESTION: 6

In an A.P. s3 = 6, s6 = 3, then it's common difference is equal to :

Solution:  QUESTION: 7

The number of terms common to the two A.P. s 2 + 5 + 8 + 11 + ...+ 98 and 3 + 8 + 13 + 18 +...+198

Solution:

For first A.P
2+5+8+11+......+98
a=2,an​=98,d=3
an​=a+(n−1)d
98=2+(n−1)3
98=2+3n−3
3n=99
n=33
Number of term =33
For first A.P
3+8+13+18+......+198
a=3,an​=198,d=5
an​=a+(n−1)d
198=3+(n−1)5
198=3+5n−5
5n=200
n=40
No of terms =40
Common terms=40−33=7

QUESTION: 8

(p + q)th and (p – q)th terms of an A.P. are respectively m and n. The pth term is :

Solution:

l=a+(n-1)d
(p+q)th term is m
m=a+(p+q-1)d
m=a+pd+qd-d  ….1
(p-q)th term is n
n=a+(p-q-1)d
n=a+pd-qd-d   ….2
Adding 1 and 2
m+n=2a+2pd-2d
m+n=2(a+pd-d)
½(m+n=a+(p-1)d
So pth term is ½(m+n)

QUESTION: 9

The first, second and last terms of an A.P. are a,b and 2a. The number of terms in the A.P. is :

Solution:

A.P : a , b , . . . . . . . . . . . . . .2a

1st term= a1 = a

2nd term = a2= b

nth term = an = 2a

d = a2 - a1 = b-a

an = a1 + (n-1)d = a + (n-1)(b-a) = 2a

(n-1)(b-a) = a

(n-1) = a / (b-a)

n = a / (b-a) + 1 = b / ( b -a )

Sn = n / 2 * ( a1 + an) = b / 2(b-a) * ( a + 2a) = 3ab / 2(b-a)

QUESTION: 10

Let s1, s2, s3 be the sums of n terms of three series in A.P., the first term of each being 1 and the common differences 1, 2, 3 respectively. If s1 + s3 = λs2, then the value of λ is :

Solution:
QUESTION: 11

Sum of first 5 terms of an A.P. is one fourth of the sum of next five terms. If the first term = 2, then the common difference of the A.P. is :

Solution:
QUESTION: 12

If x,y,z are in A.P., then the value of (x + y – z) (y + z – x) is equal to :

Solution:
QUESTION: 13

The number of numbers between 105 and 1000 which are divisible by 7 is :

Solution:
QUESTION: 14

If the numbers a,b,c,d,e form an A.P. then the value of a – 4b + 6c – 4d + e is equal to :

Solution:
QUESTION: 15

If sn denotes the sum of first n terms of an A.P., whose common difference is d, then sn – 2sn-1 + sn-2 (n >2) is equal to :

Solution:

sn​−2sn−1​+sn−2 ​= (sn​−sn−1​)−(sn−1​−sn−2​)

= an​−an−1 ​[∵(sn​−sn−1​)= an​]

= [a+(n−1)d]−[a+(n−2)d]

= a+nd−d−a−nd+2d

= d

QUESTION: 16

The sum of all 2-digited numbers which leave remainder 1 when divided by 3 is :

Solution:
The 2-digit number which when divided by 3 gives remainder 1 are: 10, 13, 16, ...97
Here a = 10, d = 13 - 10 = 3
tn = 97
nth term of an AP is tn = a + (n – 1)d
97 = 10 + (n – 1)3
⇒ 97 = 10 + 3n – 3
⇒ 97 = 7 + 3n
⇒ 3n = 97 – 7 = 90
Therefore, n = 90/3 = 30
Recall sum of n terms of AP,
Sn = n/2[2a + (n-1)d]

S30 = 30/2[2(10) + (30-1)3]
= 15[20 + 87] = 15 x 107 = 1605
Hence sum of 2-digit numbers which when divided by 3 yield 1 as remainder is 1605.
QUESTION: 17

The first term of an A.P. of consecutive integers is p2 + 1. The sum of 2p + 1 terms of this series can be expressed as :

Solution:
QUESTION: 18

If the sum of n terms of an AP is 2n2 + 5n, then its nth term is –

Solution:
QUESTION: 19

If the last term of an AP is 119 and the 8th term from the end is 91 then the common difference of the AP is –

Solution:
QUESTION: 20

If {an} = {2.5, 2.51, 2.52,...} and {bn} = {3.72, 3.73, 3.74,...} be two AP's, then a100005 – b100005 =

Solution:

Observing both the AP’s we see that the common difference of both the AP’s is same ,so difference between their corresponding terms will be same ie,a1-b1=2.5-3.72=-1.22
a2-b2=2.51-3.73=-1.22
So , a100005-b100005=-1.22

QUESTION: 21
