  1. Given sequence is 18,1521,13,...,47

    The first term a=18 and

    the common difference d=152118=2.5

    the last term is 47

    Let the last term be the nth term

    We know that the nth term of the arithmetic progression is given by a+(n1)d

    Therefore, a+(n1)d=47

    18+(n1)(2.5)=47

    18+2.52.5n=47

    20.52.5n=47

    2.5n=20.5+47

    n=67.5/2.5

    n=27

    Therefore, the number of terms in the given sequence is 27
