l = a + (n - 1)d
Where l = -82,a = ?,d = -3,n = 30
-82 = a + 29 (- 3)
a = 5

QUESTION: 6

If the sum of n terms of an AP is 3n2+5n then which of its terms is 164?​

Solution:

Sn=3n2+5n

S1=a1=3(1)2+5(1)=8

S2=3(2)2+5(2)=22

S2=22=a1+a2

a2=22-8=14

d=a2-a1=14-8=6

nth term value is 164,then what is n?

nth term=a+(n-1)d

164=8+(n-1)6

164-8 / 6=n-1

156/6=n-1

26+1=n

n=27

So 27thterm is 164.

QUESTION: 7

For an A.P. t= 2n+3, what is the formula for Sn?​

Solution:

Given , tn = 2n+3
t1=2×1+3
t1=5
Sn=n/2(t1+tn)
=n/2 (5+2n+3)
=n/2(2n+8)
=n(n+4)

QUESTION: 8

If for an A.P.Sn = n2 + 3n What is the n th term?​

= 25/2[-10+(25-1)3]
= 25/2[-10+72]
= 25/2
= 25*31
= 775
