Question 1 (v)

Given that,

Sequence is 117, 104, 91, 78, ………….

First term (a) = 117,

Common difference (d) = Second term – first term

d = 104 – 117 = –13

As we know that, to find nth term in an A.P = a + (n – 1)d

Therefore, 8th term = a + (8 – 1)d

= 117 + 7(-13) = 117 – 91 = 26

Hence 8th term of the A.P is 26
