Q) How many terms of the arithmetic progression 45, 39, 33, …….. must be taken so that their sum is 180? Explain the double answer. Ans: In AP of 45,39, 33, ……. a = 45, d = – 6, Sum of n terms of AP, Sn = (2a + (n-1)d) 180 = (2 x 45

Q) 250 logs are stacked in the following manner: 22 logs in the bottom row, 21 in the next row, 20 in the row next to it and so on (as shown by an example). In how many rows, are the 250 logs placed and how many logs are there in the top row? Ans: Let there

Q) The ratio of the 11th term to 17th term of an A.P. is 3:4. Find the ratio of 5th term to 21st term of the same A.P. Also, find the ratio of the sum of first 5 terms to that of first 21 terms. Ans: We know that nth term of an A.P. = a +
