###### Practice Set 3.2

Question 1.

Write the correct number in the given boxes from the following A. P.

1, 8, 15, 22, . . .

Here

1, 8, 15, 22, . . .

First term a = 1

Second term t1 = 8

Third term t2 = 15

Fourth term t3 = 22

We know that d = tn + 1 – tn

Thus, t2 – t1 = 15 – 8 = 7

t3 – t2 = 22 – 15 = 7

Thus, d = 7

Question 2.

Write the correct number in the given boxes from the following A. P.

3, 6, 9, 12, . . .

Here

3,6,9,12, . . .

First term a = 3

Second term t1 = 6

Third term t2 = 9

Fourth term t3 = 12

We know that d = tn + 1 – tn

Thus, t2 – t1 = 9 – 6 = 3

t3 – t2 = 12 – 9 = 3

Thus, d = 3

Question 3.

Write the correct number in the given boxes from the following A. P.

– 3, – 8, – 13, – 18, . . .

Here

– 3, – 8, – 13, – 18, . . .

First term a = – 3

Second term t1 = – 8

Third term t2 = – 13

Fourth term t3 = – 18

We know that d = tn + 1 – tn

Thus, t2 – t1 = – 13 – ( – 8) = – 13 + 8 = – 5

t3 – t2 = – 18 – ( – 13) = – 18 + 13 = – 5

Thus, d = – 5

Question 4.

Write the correct number in the given boxes from the following A. P.

70, 60, 50, 40, . . .

Here

70, 60, 50, 40, . . .

First term a = 70

Second term t1 = 60

Third term t2 = 50

Fourth term t3 = 40

We know that d = tn + 1 – tn

Thus, t2 – t1 = 50 – 60 = – 10

t3 – t2 = 40 – 50 = – 10

Thus, d = – 10

Question 5.

Decide whether following sequence is an A.P., if so find the 20th term of the progression.

– 12, – 5, 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, . . .

Given A.P. is – 12, – 5, 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, . . .

Where first term a = – 12

Second term t1 = – 5

Third term t2 = 2

Common Difference d = t2 – t1 = 2 – ( – 5) = 2 + 5 = 7

We know that, nth term of an A.P. is

tn = a + (n – 1)d

We need to find the 20th term,

Here n = 20

Thus, t20 = – 12 + (20 – 1)× 7

t20 = – 12 + (19)× 7 = – 12 + 133 = 121

Thus, t20 = 121

Question 6.

Given Arithmetic Progression 12, 16, 20, 24, . . . Find the 24th term of this progression.

Given A.P. is 12, 16, 20, 24, . . .

Where first term a = 12

Second term t1 = 16

Third term t2 = 20

Common Difference d = t2 – t1 = 20 – 16 = 4

We know that, nth term of an A.P. is

tn = a + (n – 1)d

We need to find the 24th term,

Here n = 24

Thus, t24 = 12 + (24 – 1)× 4

t24 = 12 + (23)× 4 = 12 + 92 = 104

Thus, t24 = 104

Question 7.

Find the 19th term of the following A.P.

7, 13, 19, 25, . . .

Given A.P. is 7, 13, 19, 25, . . .

Where first term a = 7

Second term t1 = 13

Third term t2 = 19

Common Difference d = t2 – t1 = 19 – 13 = 6

We know that, nth term of an A.P. is

tn = a + (n – 1)d

We need to find the 19th term,

Here n = 19

Thus, t19 = 7 + (19 – 1)× 6

t19 = 7 + (18)× 6 = 7 + 108 = 115

Thus, t19 = 115

Question 8.

Find the 27th term of the following A.P.

9, 4, – 1, – 6, – 11, . . .

Given A.P. is 9, 4, – 1, – 6, – 11, . . .

Where first term a = 9

Second term t1 = 4

Third term t2 = – 1

Common Difference d = t2 – t1 = – 1 – 4 = – 5

We know that, nth term of an A.P. is

tn = a + (n – 1)d

We need to find the 27th term,

Here n = 27

Thus, t27 = 9 + (27 – 1)× ( – 5)

t27 = 9 + (26)× ( – 5) = 9 – 130 = – 121

Thus, t27 = – 121

Question 9.

Find how many three digit natural numbers are divisible by 5.

List of three digit number divisible by 5 are

100, 105,110,115,……….. 995

Let us find how many such number are there?

From the above sequence, we know that

tn = 995, a = 100

t1 = 105, t2 = 110

Thus, d = t2 – t1 = 110 – 105 = 5

Now, By using nth term of an A.P. formula

tn = a + (n – 1)d

we can find value of “n”

Thus, on substituting all the value in formula we get,

995 = 100 + (n – 1)× 5

⇒ 995 – 100 = (n – 1)× 5

⇒ 895 = (n – 1) × 5

⇒ n = 179 + 1 = 180

Question 10.

The 11th term and the 21st term of an A.P. are 16 and 29 respectively, then find the 41th term of that A.P.

Given: t11 = 16 and t21 = 29

To find: t41

Using nth term of an A.P. formula

tn = a + (n – 1)d

we will find value of “a” and “d”

Let, t11 = a + (11 – 1) d

⇒ 16 = a + 10 d …..(1)

t21 = a + (21 – 1) d

⇒ 29 = a + 20 d …..(2)

Subtracting eq. (1) from eq. (2), we get,

⇒ 29 – 16 = (a – a) + (20 d – 10 d)

⇒ 13 = 10 d

Substitute value of “d” in eq. (1) to get value of “a”

⇒ 16 = a + 13

⇒ a = 16 – 13 = 3

Now, we will find the value of t41 using nth term of an A.P. formula

⇒ t41 = 3 + 4 × 13 = 3 + 52 = 55

Thus, t41 = 55

Question 11.

11, 8, 5, 2, . . . In this A.P. which term is number – 151?

By, given A.P. 11, 8, 5, 2, . . .

we know that

a = 11, t1 = 8, t2 = 5

Thus, d = t2 – t1 = 5 – 8 = – 3

Given: tn = – 151

Now, By using nth term of an A.P. formula

tn = a + (n – 1)d

we can find value of “n”

Thus, on substituting all the value in formula we get,

– 151 = 11 + (n – 1)× ( – 3)

⇒ – 151 – 11 = (n – 1)× ( – 3)

⇒ – 162 = (n – 1) × ( – 3)

⇒ n = 54 + 1 = 55

Question 12.

In the natural numbers from 10 to 250, how many are divisible by 4?

List of number divisible by 4 in between 10 to 250 are

12, 16,20,24,……….. 248

Let us find how many such number are there?

From the above sequence, we know that

tn = 248, a = 12

t1 = 16, t2 = 20

Thus, d = t2 – t1 = 20 – 16 = 4

Now, By using nth term of an A.P. formula

tn = a + (n – 1)d

we can find value of “n”

Thus, on substituting all the value in formula we get,

248 = 12 + (n – 1)× 4

⇒ 248 – 12 = (n – 1)× 4

⇒ 236 = (n – 1) × 4

⇒ n = 59 + 1 = 60

Question 13.

In an A.P. 17th term is 7 more than its 10th term. Find the common difference.

Given: t17 = 7 + t10 ……(1)

In t17, n = 17

In t10, n = 10

By using nth term of an A.P. formula,

tn = a + (n – 1)d

where n = no. of terms

a = first term

d = common difference

tn = nth term

Thus, on using formula in eq. (1) we get,

⇒ a + (17 – 1)d = 7 + (a + (10 – 1)d)

⇒ a + 16 d = 7 + (a + 9 d)

⇒ a + 16 d – a – 9 d = 7

⇒ 7 d = 7

Thus, common difference “d” = 1
