Question 1.
Find the sum of the first 20-terms of the arithmetic progression having the sum of first 10 terms as 52 and the sum of the first 15 terms as 77.
Solution:
Let ‘a’ be the first term and d be the common difference of A.P.  Question 2. Solution:  Question 3.
Compute the sum of first n terms of the following series:
(i) 8 + 88 + 888 + 8888 + ……
(i) 6 + 66 + 666 + 6666 + …..
Solution:  Question 4.
Compute the sum of first n terms of 1 + (1 + 4) + (1 + 4 + 42) + (1 + 4 + 42 + 43) + ……..
Solution:  Question 5.
Find the general term and sum to n terms of the sequence $$1, \frac{4}{3}, \frac{7}{9}, \frac{10}{27}, \ldots \ldots \ldots$$
Solution: Denominator 1, 3, 9, 27, which is a G.P. a = 1, r = 3 It is an arithmetico Geometric series. Here the nth term is tn = [a + (n – 1)d]rn – 1 where a = 1, d = 3 and r = 1/3
Now the sum to n terms is Question 6. Solution: Question 7.
Show that the sum of (m + n)th and (m – n)th term of an A.P. is equal to twice the mth term.
Solution:
Let the A.P. be a, a + d, a + 2d, ……..
tm + n = a + (m + n – 1)d
tm – n = a + (m – n – 1)d
tm = a + (m – 1)d
2tm = 2[a + (m – 1)d]
To prove tm + n + tm – n = 2tm
LHS tm + n + tm – n = a + (m + n – 1)d + a + (m – n – 1)d = 2a + d [2m – 2]
= 2[a + (m – 1)d) = 2 tm = RHS

Question 8.
A man repays an amount of ₹ 3250 by paying ₹ 20 in the first month and then increases the payment by ₹ 15 per month. How long will it take him to clear the amount?
Solution:
a = 20, d = 15, Sn = 3250 to find n. 3n2 + 5n – 1300 = 0
3n2 – 60n + 65n – 1300 = 0
3n (n – 20) + 65 (n – 20) = 0
(3n + 65) (n – 20) = 0
n = – 65/3 or 20
n = – 65/3 is not possible
∴ n = 20
So he will take 20 months to clear the amount. Question 9.
In a race, 20 balls are placed in a line at intervals of 4 meters with the first ball 24 meters away from the starting point. A contestant is required to bring the balls back to the starting place one at a time. How far would the contestant run to bring back all balls?
Solution:
t1 = 24 × 2 = 48, t2 =48 + 8 = 56 or (24 + 4)2, t3 =(28 + 4)2 = 64 which is an A.P.
Here a = 48,
d = 56 – 48 = 8 The contestant has to run 2480 m to bring all the balls.

Question 10.
The number of bacteria in a certain culture doubles every hour. If there were 30 bacteria present in the culture originally, how many bacteria will be present at the end of 2nd hour, 4th hour and nth hour?
Solution:
Number of bacteria at the beginning = 30
Number of bacteria after 1 hour = 30 × 2 = 60
Number of bacteria after 2 hours = 30 × 22 = 120
Number of bacteria after 4 hours = 30 × 24 = 30 × 16 = 480
∴ Number of bacteria after nth hour = 30 × 2n

Question 11.
What will ₹ 500 amounts to in 10 years after its deposit in a bank which pays annual interest rate of 10% compounded annually?
Solution:  Question 12.
In a certain town, a viral disease caused severe health hazards upon its people disturbing their normal life. It was found that on each day, the virus which caused the disease spread in Geometric Progression. The amount of infectious virus particle gets doubled each day, being 5 particles on the first day. Find the day when the infectious virus particles just grow over 1,50,000 units?
Solution:
a = 5, r = 2, tn >150000, To find ‘n’ On the 15th day it will grow over 150000 units.

Question 1.
If the ratio of the sums of m terms and n terms of an A.P. be m2 : n2, prove that the ratio of its mth and nth terms is (2m – 1) : (2n – 1).
Solution:
Let ‘a’ be the first term and d be the common difference of A.P. ⇒ 2an + (mn – n)d = 2am + (mn – m)d
⇒ 2an – 2am = (mn – m – mn + n)d
⇒ 2a(n – m) = (n – m)d ⇒ d = 2a, [n – m ≠ 0, as n ≠ m] Hence, the required ratio is (2m – 1) : (2n – 1)
