  1. 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
