1. Solution:

(i) Given,

First term, a = 7

Common difference, d = 3

Number of terms, n = 8,

We have to find the nth term, an = ?

For an A.P,

an = a+(n−1)d

Putting Down the values,

7+(8 −1) 3

7+(7) 3

7+21 = 28

an = 28

(ii)

a = -18

d = ?

n = 10

an = 0

For a A.P we use:-

an = a+(n−1)d

Putting Down the values,

0 = − 18 +(10−1)d

18 = 9d

d = 18/9 = 2

So, c.d or = 2

(iii)

a = ?

d = -3

n = 18

an = -5

We know for an A.P.,

an = a+(n−1)d

Putting down the values,

−5 = a+(18−1) (−3)

−5 = a+(17) (−3)

−5 = a−51

a = 51−5 = 46

a = 46

(iv) It is Given That,

a = -18.9

d = 2.5

n = ?

an = 3.6

We know for A.P:-

an = a +(n −1)d

Putting down the values:

3.6 = − 18.9+(n −1)2.5

3.6 + 18.9 = (n−1)2.5

22.5 = (n−1)2.5

(n – 1) = 22.5/2.5

n – 1 = 9

n = 10

Hence, n = 10

(v) It is Given,

a = 3.5

d = 0

n = 105

nth term , an = ?

For an A.P we know:

an = a+(n −1)d

Putting down the values,

an = 3.5+(105−1) 0

an = 3.5+104×0

an = 3.5

So, an = 3.5
