solution of each questions from the arithmetic series worksheet.

(7) In an arithmetic sequence 60,56,52,48,....... starting from the
first term,how many terms are needed so that their sum is 368?

**Solution:**

In this problem we have to find the number of terms are needed so that their sum is 368

S n = 368

60,56,52,48,.......

a = 60 d = 56 - 60

= -4

(n/2) [ 2a + (n-1) d ] = 368

(n/2) [ 2(60) + (n-1)(-4) ] = 368

(n/2) [ 120 - 4 n + 4 ] = 368

(n/2) [ 124 - 4 n ] = 368

n [ 124 - 4 n ] = 368 x 2

n [ 124 - 4 n ] = 368 x 2

124 n - 4 n² = 736

4 n² - 124 n + 736 = 0

÷ by 4 = > n² - 31 n + 184 = 0

(n-23) (n-8) = 0

**n = 23,8**

Sum of 8 or 23 terms of arithmetic sequence is 368.

(8) Find the sum of all 3 digit natural numbers,which are divisible by 9.

**Solution:**

3 digit number starts from 100 and ends with 999. From this sequence we have to find number of terms which are divisible by 9 and also we have to find their sum.

108,117,126,........................999

The first number which is divisible by 9 from this sequence is 108,the second number will be 117 and the last number will be 999.

108 + 117+ 126 + ........... + 999

a = 108 d = 117 - 108 and L = 999

d = 9

to find number of terms we have to use the formula for (n)

n = [ (L-a)/d ]+ 1

n = [(999-108)/9] + 1

n = [891/9] + 1

n = 99 + 1

n = 100

S n = (n/2) [a+ L]

= (100/2) [108 + 999]

= 50 [1107]

= **55350**

(9) Find the sum of first 20 terms of the arithmetic series in which 3
rd term is 7 and 7th term is 2 more than three times its 3rd term.

**Solution:**

3rd term = 7

t₃ = 7

t₇ = 3(t₃) + 2

t₇ = 3(7) + 2

t₇ = 21 + 2

t₇ = 23

a + 2d = 7 -----(1)

a + 6d = 23 -----(2)

Solving (1) and (2) we get

- 4 d = -16

d = 16/4

d = 4

Substitute d = 4 in the first equation

a + 2 (4) = 7

a + 8 = 7

a = 7 - 8

a = -1

Now we need to find sum of 20 terms

Sn = (n/2) [ 2a + (n-1) d ]

S₂₀ = (20/2) [ 2(-1) + (20-1) (4) ]

= 10 [ - 2 + 19 (4) ]

= 10 [ - 2 + 76 ]

= 10 [ 74 ]

= **740**
