**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**4.** Determine k so that k^{2} + 4k + 8, 2k^{2} + 3k + 6, 3k^{2} + 4k + 4 are three consecutive terms of an 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?

**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.

**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
