# Class 10 Maths Chapter 5 Practice Question Answers - Arithmetic Progressions

## Questions

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

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.

20. The 8th term of an AP is zero. Prove that its 38th term is triple its 18th term.
Hint:
T8 =0 ⇒ a + 7d = 0 ⇒ a = –7d
T38 = a + 37d = –7d + 37d = 30d
Also, T18 = a + 17d = –7d + 17d = 10d
30d = 3 × (10d)  ⇒ T38 = 3 × T18

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 a31
⇒ an – a31 = 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 an = 497
⇒  a + (n – 1) d = an ⇒ 203 + (n – 1) × 7 = 497

## FAQs on Class 10 Maths Chapter 5 Practice Question Answers - Arithmetic Progressions

 1. What is an arithmetic progression?
Ans. An arithmetic progression is a sequence of numbers in which the difference between consecutive terms is constant. For example, 2, 5, 8, 11, 14 is an arithmetic progression with a common difference of 3.
 2. How can I find the nth term of an arithmetic progression?
Ans. To find the nth term of an arithmetic progression, you can use the formula: an = a1 + (n-1)d, where an represents the nth term, a1 is the first term, n is the position of the term, and d is the common difference.
 3. What is the sum of an arithmetic progression?
Ans. The sum of an arithmetic progression can be found using the formula: Sn = n/2(a1 + an), where Sn is the sum of the first n terms, n is the number of terms, a1 is the first term, and an is the nth term.
 4. Can the common difference of an arithmetic progression be negative?
Ans. Yes, the common difference of an arithmetic progression can be negative. It simply means that each term in the sequence is decreasing by a certain value.
 5. How can I determine if a given sequence is an arithmetic progression?
Ans. To determine if a given sequence is an arithmetic progression, you need to check if the difference between consecutive terms is constant. If the difference remains the same throughout the sequence, then it is an arithmetic progression.
