Math Progression and How to Solve Arithmetic Progression (AP)?

In nature numerous things follow the example, for example : deret geometri, the gap of honeycomb, Petals of Rose Flower. As like that Arithmetic Progression is kind of number example. In this number are orchestrated in an example.

Succession: It is a lot of numbers which are organized in a specific request. Arrangement is

a1,a2,a3,a4,a5… .an

For instance Odd number arrangement

1, 3, 5, 7… … ..

Arrangement: Series is some of terms in a succession. In the event that there are n terms in an arrangement, at that point whole of n term is meant by Sn.

Sn= a1+a2+a3+… +an

General nth term of AP arrangement:

a1, a2, a3, a4, … .., an

an, a+d, a+d+d, a+d+d+d, … ..


a2=a+d= a(2-1)d

a3= a+2d=a(3-1)d

an= a+(n-1)d

So recipe is to ascertain nth term is

an= First term + ( term number-1) regular distinction

Q1: locate the 13 the term of AP arrangement

2, 4, 6, 8, 10… …


Initial term is a= 2 Common contrast (d) = 4-2= 2=6-4

So apply recipe I.e. an= a+ (n-1) d

a13= 2+ (13-1) 2


Q2: If 11thterm is 47 and initial term is 7. What is basic distinction between them?


a=7 a11=47 n=11 d=?

a11= a + (n-1) d

47=7 + (11-1) d




Regular contrast (d) = 4.

Total of first n terms of an AP arrangement:

Assume this is AP arrangement 1, 2, 3, 4, … , 49, 50

So entirety of these terms is S50= 1+2+3+4+… . + 49+50 … (1)

Record backward request we will get

S50=50+49+… … +4+2+3+1… … (2)

Presently include condition 1 and 2

2 S50= 51+51+… … +51+51+51+51 (multiple times)

2S50= 50X51


Presently for n terms of an AP

First n terms of AP arrangement

an, a+d, a+2d,… … . a+ (n-2)d, a+(n-1)d

so Sn= a+(a+d)+(a+2d)+… … .+ [a+(n-2)d] +[a+(n-1)d]

Compose these in switch request

Sn= [a+(n-1)d]+ [a+(n-2)d] + … + (a+d)+a

Presently include them

2Sn=[2a+(n-1)d]+ [2a+(n-1)d]+… … [2a+(n-1)d]+ [2a+(n-1)d]… … (n terms)

2Sn= n[2a+(n-1)d]

Sn= n/2[2a+(n-1)d]

Sn= n/2{ a+ an}; where an= a+ (n-1)d= l (Last term)

So Sn=n/2{a+l)
