Given that,

First term, aÂ = 17Last term, lÂ = 350Common difference, dÂ = 9Let there beÂ

nÂ terms in the A.P., thus the formula for last term can be written as;l = a+(nÂ âˆ’1)d350 = 17+(

nÂ âˆ’1)9333 = (

nâˆ’1)9(

nâˆ’1) = 37nÂ = 38SÂ =Â_{n}n/2 (a+l)SÂ =Â 13/2 (17+350)_{38}= 19Ã—367

= 6973

Thus, this A.P. contains 38 terms and the sum of the terms of this A.P. is 6973.
