10th CBSE math solution for exercise 5.2 part 1

(1)
Fill in the blanks in the following table, given that a is the first
term,d the common difference and a n the nth term of the AP.

Solution:

a = 7 d = 3 n = 8

from the given details we have to find nth term

a n = a + (n - 1) d

a n = 7 + (8 - 1) (3)

a n = 7 + 7 (3)

= 7 + 21

= 28

The general term = 28

(ii) a = -18 n = 10 a n = 0

Solution:

we need the find the common difference

a n = 0

a + (n - 1) d = 0

-18 + (10 - 1) d = 0

-18 + 9 d = 0

9 d = 18

d = 18/9

d = 2

(iii)
d = -3 n = 18 a n = -5

Solution:

a n = -5

a + (n - 1) d = -5

a + (18 - 1) (-3) = - 5

a + 17 (-3) = -5

a - 51 = -5

a = -5 + 51

a = 46
