1. Find the value of ‘p’ if the numbers x, 2x + p, 3x + p are three successive terms of the AP.
2. Find p and q such that: 2p, 2p + q, p + 4q, 35 are in AP
3. Find a, b and c such that the following numbers are in A.P.
a, 7, b, 23, c
Hint:
7 – a = b – 7 ⇒ a + b = 14
23 – b = b – 7 ⇒ 2b = 30 ⇒ b = 15
23 – b = c – 23 ⇒ c + b = 4 6 ⇒ c = 46 – b
= 46 – 15
=31
And a = 14 – b = 14 – 15 = – 1

12. Find the 16th term of the AP 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, ...
13. Find the 12th term of the AP:
14, 9, 4, –1, –6, ...
14. Find the middle term of the AP :
20, 16, ..., –180
15. Find the 6th term from the end of the A.P.
17, 14, 11, ..., (–40)
16. Find the middle term of the AP :
10, 7, 4, ..., (–62)
17. Which term of the AP : 24, 21, 18, 13, ... is the first negative term?
Hint: The first negative term will be the term immediately less than 0. i.e. Tn < 0.
⇒ [a + (n – 1)d] < 0
Here, a = 24
d = (21  24) = 3
⇒ 3n > 27
⇒ n > 9
∴ n = 10
18. The 6th term of an AP is –10 and its 10th term is –26. Determine the 15th term of the A.P.
19. For what value of n are the nth terms of the following two APs the same: 13, 19, 25, ... and 69, 68, 67, ....
20. The 8th term of an AP is zero. Prove that its 38th term is triple its 18th term.
Hint:
T_{8} =0 ⇒ a + 7d = 0 ⇒ a = –7d
T_{38} = a + 37d = –7d + 37d = 30d
Also, T_{18} = a + 17d = –7d + 17d = 10d
30d = 3 × (10d) ⇒ T_{38} = 3 × T_{18}
21. For what value of n, the nth terms of the following two AP’s are equal?
23, 25, 27, 29, ... and –17, –10, –3, 4, ...
22. Which term of the AP : 5, 15, 25, ... will be 130 more than 31st term?
Hint: Let an be the required term
i.e. an be 130 more than a_{31}
⇒ a_{n} – a_{31} = 130
23. Which term of the AP : 3, 15, 27, 39, ... will be 130 120 more than its 64th term?
24. The 9th term of an AP is 499 and its 499th term is 9. Which of its term is equal to zero.
25. Determine A.P. whose fourth term is 18 and the difference of the ninth term from fifteenth term is 30.
26. How many natural numbers are there between 200 and 500 which are divisible by 7?
Hint: 200 ... 203 ... 497 ... 500
← Divisible by 7 →
∴ a = 203, d = 7 and a_{n} = 497
⇒ a + (n – 1) d = a_{n} ⇒ 203 + (n – 1) × 7 = 497
27. How many multiples of 7 are there between 100 and 300?
28. Find the value of the middle term of the following A.P. : –11, –7, –3, ..., 49.

Hint: Here, a = 12, d = 3 and an = 99
31. If the 9th term of an AP is zero, show that 29th term is double the 19th term.
Hint:
⇒ 20d = 20d
⇒ a_{29} = a_{19}
32. If in an AP, the sum of its first ten terms is –80 and the sum of its next ten terms is –280. Find the AP
33. If in an A.P. a_{n} = 20 and S_{n} = 399 then find ‘n’
Hint: a_{n} = a + (n – 1)d ⇒ (n – 1)d = 19
