Question 1.

In each of the arithmetic sequences below, some terms are missing and their positions are marked with . Find them.

Answer:

Common difference = 42 – 24 = 18

Numbers to be found out = 42 + 18 = 60

60 + 18 = 78

Arithmetic sequence 24, 42, 60, 78, ………….

Common difference = 42 – 24 = 18

Numbers to be found out = 24 – 18 = 6

42 + 18 = 60

24 – 18, 24, 42, 42 + 18

Arithmetic sequence 6, 24, 42, 60, ………….

Common difference = 18

Numbers to be found out = 24 – 18 = 6

6 – 18 = – 12 6 – 18, 24 – 18, 24, 42

Arithmetic sequence – 12, 6, 24, 42, ………

Common difference = 9

[(42 – 24)/2 = 18/2 = 9)

Numbers to be found out =

24 + 9 = 33, 33 + 9 = 42, 42 + 9 = 51

Arithmetic sequence 24, 33, 42, 51 ……..

Common difference = (42 + 24)/2 = 18/2 = 9

Numbers to be found out = 24 – 9, 24, 24 +9, 42

Arithmetic sequence 15, 24, 33, 42

Let numbers to be found out be x and y If common differences are equal = x – 24 = 42 – y

Question 2.

The terms in two positions of some arithmetic sequences are given below.

Write the first five terms of each:

i. 3^{rd} term 34

6^{th} term 67

ii. 3^{rd} term 43

6^{th} term 76

iii. 3^{rd} term 2

5^{th} term 3

iv. 4^{th} term 2

7^{th} term 3

v. 2^{nd} term 5

5^{th} term 2

Answer:

i. Third term =34

Sixth term =67

We get the 6th term from the 3 rd term, we must add the common difference (6 – 3 = 3)3 time.

Three times of common difference 67 – 34 = 33

Common difference = 33/3 = 11

Second term = 34 – 11 = 23

First term = 23 – 11 = 12

First five terms 12, 23, 34, 45, 56

ii. Third term =43

Sixth term = 76

Thrice the common difference = 76 – 43 = 33

Common difference = 33/3 = 11

Second term = 43 – 11 = 32

First term =32 – 11 =21

First five terms 21, 32, 43, 54, 65.

iii. Third term = 2

Fifth term = 3

Twice the common difference= 3 – 2 = 1

Common difference = 1/2

Second term =2 – 1/2 = 1 1/2

First term = 1 1/2 – 1/2 = 1

iv. Fourth term =2

Seventh term = 3

Thrice the common difference = 3 – 2 = 1

Common difference = 1/3

v. Second term = 5

Fifth term = 2

Thrice the common difference = 2 – 5 = -3

Common difference = –3/3 = –1

First term = 5 – –1 = 6

First five terms 6, 5, 4, 3, 2

Question 3.

The 5th term of an arithmetic sequence is 38 and the 9th term is 66. What is its 25th term?

Fifth term = 38

Ninth term = 66

Term difference = 66 – 38 = 28

Position difference = 9 – 5 = 4 – 2 8

Common difference = 28/4 = 7

25th term = Fifth term = 20 × Common difference

25th term = Fifth term + 20 × Common difference = 38 + 20 × 7 = 38 + 140 = 178

Question 4.

Is 101 a term of the arithmetic sequence 13, 24, 35, …? What about 1001?

Answer:

13, 24, 35,………..

Common difference = 24 – 13 = 11

Difference between 101 and 13

= 101 – 13 = 88 = 8 × 11

That is we can obtained 101 by adding 8 times of common difference with 13.

So, ‘101’ is the 9th term of this arithmetic sequence

101 is the 9th term of this sequence

Difference between 1001 and 13

= 1001 – 13 = 988

This is not a multiple of 11.

Therefore ‘1oo1’ is not a term of this arithmetic sequence.

Question 5.

How many three-digit numbers are there, which leave a remainder 3 on division by 7?

Answer:

101, 108, …………………………. 997

First-term = 101

Common difference = 7

Last term = 997

Term difference = 997 – 101 = 896 = 128 × 7

Last term = First term + 128 × common difference

i. e., 997 is the 129th term.

129 three-digit numbers are there which leave remainder 3 on division by 7

Question 6.

Fill up the empty cells of the given square such that the numbers in each row and column form arithmetic sequences:

What if we use some other numbers instead of 1, 4, 28 and 7?

Position difference = 4 – 1 = 3

Common difference = 3/3 = 1

Arithmetic sequence 1, 2, 3,4

2. In the first coloumn Term difference = 7 – 1 = 6

Position difference = 4 – 1 = 3

Common difference = 6/3 = 2

Arithmetic sequence 1, 3, 5, 7……….

3. In the fourth row

Termdifference = 28 – 7 = 21

Position difference = 4 – 1=3

Common difference = 21/3 = 7

Arithmetic sequence 7, 14, 21, 28

4. In the second coloumn 2, –,– 14

Term difference = 14 – 2 = 12

Position difference = 4 – 1=3

Common difference = 14–2/3 = 4

Arithmetic sequence 2, 6, 10, 14

5. In the third coloumn 3, –, –, 21

Term difference = 21 – 3 = 18

Position difference = 4 – 1=3

Common difference = 21–3/3 = 6

Arithmetic sequence 3, 9,15, 21

6. In the fourth coloumn 4, –, –, 28

Term difference = 28 – 4 = 24

Position difference = 4 – 1=3

Common difference = 28–4/3 = 8

Arithmetic sequence 4,12, 20, 28

Question 7.

In the table below, some arithmetic sequences are given with two numbers against each. Check whether each belongs to the sequence or not.

Answer:

i. Sequence 11, 22, 33, …………..

Difference = 22 – 11 = 11

Difference between 123 and 11.

=123 – 11 = 112

112 is not a multiple of 11, so 123 is not a term of this arithmetic series.

Difference between 132 and 11

= 132 – 11 = 121

121 is a multiple of 11, so 132 is a term of this arithmetic series.

ii. Sequence 12, 23, 34,

Common difference = 23 – 12 = 11 Difference between 100 and 12

= 100 – 12 = 88

88 is a multiple of 11, so 100 is a term of this arithmetic series.

Difference between 1000 and 12.

= 1000 – 12 = 988

988 is not a multiple of 11, so 1000 is not a term of this arithmetic series.

iii. Sequence 21, 32, 43, ……………

Common difference = 32 – 21 = 11

Difference between 100 and 21.

= 100 – 21 = 79

79 is not a multiple of 11, so 1000 is not a term of this arithmetic series.

Difference between 1000 and 21

=1000 – 21 = 979

979 is a multiple of 11, so 1000 is a term of this arithmetic series.

Question 1.

The 8th term of an arithmetic sequence is 12 and its 12th term is 8. What is the algebraic expression for this sequence?

Answer:

Difference between terms = 8 – 12 = -4

To get the 12th term from the 8td term, we must add the common difference (9 – 5 = 4) 4 times.

Common difference = – 4 / 4 = -1

Algebraic expression for arithmetic series

x_{n} = an + b

12 = – 1 × 8 + b ⇒ 12 = – 8 + b

b = 12 + 8 = 20

Algebraic expression for arithmetic series =

xn = –1 × n + 20 = 20 – n

Question 2.

The Bird problem in Class 8 (The lesson, Equations) can be slightly changed as follows.

One bird said:

“We and we again, together with half of us and half of that, and one more is a natural number”

Write all the possible number of birds starting from the least. For each of these, write the sum told by the bird also.

Find the algebraic expression for these two sequences.

Answer:

If we take x as the number of birds

∴ 11x + 4 is a multiple of 4.

⇒ 11x is a multiple of 4.

x is a multiple of 4.

No. of birds 4, 8, 12, 16 ……………

d = 1/6

x_{n}=dn+(f−d)=1/6 n+1/6=1/6(n+1)

As n = 5, 11, 17,………….

∴ All natural numbers will occur in this arithmetic sequence

Question 4.

Prove that the arithmetic sequence with first term 1/3 and common difference 2/3 contains all odd numbers, but no even number.

Answer:

Value of (2n -1) is always an odd number, Therefore there is no even number.

Question 5.

Prove that the squares of all the terms of the arithmetic sequence 4,7,10,…. belong to the sequence.

Answer:

This is in the form 3k + 1, so squares of all terms are in this series. (When we divide 3k + 1 by 3 get 1 as remainder)

Question 6.

Prove that the arithmetic sequence 5,8,11,……. contains no perfect squares.

Answer:

f = 5

d = 3

x_{n}=dn+(f−d)=3n+(5−3)=3n+2

That is when we divide a perfect square with 3 we get remainder as 1 or 0. Here we can divide 3k + 2 by 3 to get 2 as remainder and it doesn’t contain any perfect square.

Question 7.

Write the whole numbers in the arithmetic sequence 11/8, 14/8, 17/8, ………..

Sum of first four terms = 300

Four consecutive terms of an arithmetic sequence, the sums of the first and the last is equal to the sum of the second and the third.

First term + Fourth term = Second term + Third term = 300/2 = 150

∴ Fourth term = 150 – 30 = 120

30, ………, ………., 120

Term difference = 120 – 30 = 90

Position difference = 4 – 1 = 3

Common difference = 90/3 = 30

∴ Sequence = 30, 60, 90, 120,………….

iii. First term = 30

Sum of first five terms = 300

Sum of the five consecutive terms of arithmetic sequence is five times of its middle term.

Third term = 300/5 = 60

Common difference = 15

∴ Sequence = 30, 45, 60, 75, 90, ……….

iv. First term =30

Sum of first six terms =300

Fist term + Sixth term = Second term + Fifth term = Third term + Fourth term = 300/3 = 100

Sixth term = 100 – First term = 100 – 30 = 70

Term difference = 70 – 30 = 40

Sequence = 30, 38, 46, 54, 62, 70,

Question 6.

The sum of the first five terms of an arithmetic sequence is 150 and the sum of the first ten terms is 550.

i. What is the third term of the sequence?

ii. What is the eighth term?

iii. What are the first three terms of the sequence?

Answer:

i. Sum of first five terms = 150

Sum of the five consecutive terms of arithmetic sequence is five times of its middle term.

Third term = 150/5 = 30

ii. First term + Tenth term = Second term + Nineth term = Third term + Eighth term = Fourth term + Seventh term = Fifth term + Sixth term = 5505 = 110

Third term + Eighth term = 110

Eighth term =110 – Third term

= 110 – 30 = 80

iii. Third term = 30

Eighth term = 80

Term difference = 80 – 30 = 50

Position difference = 8 – 3 = 5

Common difference = 50/5 = 10

∴ Sequence = 10, 20, 30,…………….

Question 7.

The angles of a pentagon are in arithmetic sequence. Prove that its smallest angle is greater than 36°.

Answer:

Let the smallest angle in the pentagon be x

x + x + d + x + 2d + x + 3d + x + 4d = 540

5x + 10d = 540,

x + 2d = 108

x = 36°, then

d = 36,

angles are 36, 72, 108, 144, 180.

180° will not an angle of a pentagon (Sum of exterior and interior angle is 180°).

Therefore the smallest angle in a pentagon will always be greater than 36°

Question 18.

The difference between 12th and 8th term of an arithmetic sequence is 20. Find the common difference.

Answer:

Question 19.

The tenth term of an arithmetic sequence is 65 and its 15^{th} term is 80. Is 200 a term of this sequence?

Answer:

’To get the 15^{th} term from the 10th term, we must add the common difference 5 times.

5 times of common difference = 80 – 65 = 15

Common difference (d) = 15/5 = 3

Dividing 65 by 3 we get the remainder as 2.

Dividing 200 by 3 we get the remainder as 2.

Therefore 200 is a term of this sequence.

Question 20.

The 20^{th} term of an arithmetic sequence is 64 and its 21^{th} term is 70. Can the difference between two terms 46? Why?

Answer:

20^{th} term = 64

21^{th} term = 70

Common difference = 70 – 64 = 6 Difference between any two terms of this sequence will be a multiple of 6.

Dividing 46 by 6 we get the remainder as 4, So difference between any two terms of the sequence will not be 46.

Question 21.

The angles of a quadrilateral are in an arithmetic sequence. The largest angle is 150°. Find other angles.

Answer:

Sum of four angles of a quadrilateral = 360° Angles are in arithmetic sequence, so first angle + 3 x common difference (d) = 150°

i.e., f + 3d= 150

The four angles are f, 70, f + 2d, 150 .

f+2d=150+70/2=110

Common difference = 110 – 70 = 40

First angle = 70 – 40 = 30

So, the four angles are 30, 70, 110, 150

Question 28.

Write algebra of the sum of the sequence 6n + 5. Can the sum 2000 ? Why?

Answer:

nth term = 6n + 5

1st term = 6 + 5 = 11

Sum of n terms = n/2 (11 + 6n + 5)

= n/2 (6n + 16) = n(3n + 8) = 3n^{2} + 8n

Algebraic form of the sum = 3n^{2} + 8n

To check wheater the sum is 2ooo

3n^{2} + 8n = 2000

i.e., 3n^{2} + 8n – 2000 = 0

It is not a natural number. So 2000 will not be a sum.

Worksheet 7

Question 29.

Prove that the squares of the sequence 1, 3, 5,……..belongs to that sequence itself.

Answer:

Odd-numbered arithmetic sequence will be 1, 3, 5, …

Here the arithmetic sequence have common difference 2. Their squares are also odd numbers. Therefore the squares of the sequence 1, 3, 5, …belongs to that sequence itself. nth term = 2n – 1.

Question 30.

In an arithmetic sequence having terms natural numbers, prove that if one of the terms is a perfect square, it will have more that this as the perfect square term.

As we know when a definite number of common difference of an arithmetic sequence is added to a term we get another term of the same sequence. If n2 is a perfect square term, add (2n + d) times d to n^{2}. n^{2} + (2n + d) x d = (n + d)^{2}. This is nothing but a perfect square term.

Question 31.

If the angles of a right triangle are in an arithmetic sequence, find them by making suitable equations.

Answer:

Let angles be f – d, f, f + d f – d + f + f+d = 180

3f = 180, f = 60, f + d = 90, d = 30 Angles are 30, 60 and 90

Question 32.

If ten times tenth term of an arithmetic sequence is equal to fifteen times fifteenth term, find 25^{th} term. Calculate the product of first 25^{th} terms.

Answer:

10 × (f + 9d) = 15 × ( f + 14 d)

⇒ 10 f + 90 d = 15 f + 210 d

⇒ 5 f+ 120 d = 0

⇒ f + 24 d=0

25^{th }term = f + 24 d = 0

25^{th} term is 0. Product of 25 terms is 0.

Question 33.

Write the algebraic form of 1,4,7,10,… is 100 a term of this sequence. Why? Prove that the square of any term of this sequence belongs to that sequence.

Answer:

1,4, 7, 10,…

f = 1, d = 3

x_{n}= dn + (f – d) = 3n + (1 – 3) = 3n – 2

When 4 is divided by 3 we get remainder as 1 When 100 is divided by 3 we get remainder as 1 So, 100 is a term of the arithmetic sequence.

Square = (3n – 2)^{2} = 9n^{2} – 12n + 4 (9n^{2} – 12n + 4) + 3

When 9n^{2} – 12n + 4 is divided by 3the remainder is 1.

So square of the term also in the sequence.

∴ The square of any term of this sequence belongs to that sequence.

2016 – 98 = 1918

1918 is a multiple of 7.

(Quotient = 274, Remainder = 0)

∴ 2016 is a term of this sequence.

b. Check whether 100 is a term in this sequence.

c. Check whether the difference of any two terms of this sequence will be 2015.

d. Find the position of the term 125 in this sequence.

Answer:

a. f = 2

d. = 3

Sequence is 2, 5, 8, 11, ……….

b. If (100 – 2) is not a multiple of common difference 3, then 100 is not a term of the arithmetic sequence.

c. 2015 is not a multiple of common difference 3, so 2015 will not be the difference of any two terms of this sequence.

d. x_{n}= 3n – 1

3n-1 = 125

3n= 126

n = 42

Question 52.

When 60 added to the first term of an A.P, we get its 11^{th} term. Which number should be added to its first term to get the 19^{th} term? Can 75 be the difference between any of the two terms of this sequence?

Answer:

Differences between first term and 11th term is = 60

(11 – 1 = 10)

10 times of common difference = 60

Common difference = 60/10 = 6

Differences between first term and 19^{th} term is = 18 x common difference = 18 x 6 = 108 When 108 is added to the first term, we get 19^{th}

term. The difference between two terms in an A.P is the multiple of common difference. 75 is not the multiple of common difference 6. So 75 cannot be the difference between two terms in the series.

Question 54.

23rd term of an arithmetic sequence is 32. 35^{th} term is 104. Then

a. What is the common difference?

b. Which is the middle term of first 35 terms of this sequence?

c. Find the sum of first 35 terms of this sequence.

Answer:

b. Middle term offirst 35 terms = √4

c. 18 th term = X_{19} = X_{23} – 5d = 32 -5 × 6 = 32 – 30 = 2

Sum of 35 terms = 18^{th} term × 35 = 70

Question 55.

The difference between the 15^{th} term and the 5^{th} term of an A.P is 40. Which number is to be added to its 12 Answer:

The difference between the 15^{th} term and the 5^{th} term = 40

i.e., ten times an of a common difference = 40

Common difference = 40/10 = 4

When we add 8 x common difference we will get 20^{th} term.

The difference between the 12^{th} term and the 20^{th} term = (20 – 12) × common difference

= 8 x 4 = 32

The difference between the first term and the 21^{th} term = (21 – 1) × Common difference

= 20 × = 80

b. Which is the last number in the 30th row?

c. Which is the first number in the 30th row?

d. What is the sum of all terms in the first 30 rows?

Answer:

a. Total numbers in each sequence can be written as 1, 3, 5, …. xn = 2_{n} – 1

Numbers in the 30th row = 2 x 30 – 1 = 59

b. Last number in the first row = 12 = 1

Last number in the second row = 22 = 4

Last number in the third row = 32 = 9

Last number in thew 30th row = 302 = 900

c. Number of terms in the 30th row = 59

Last number in the 30th row = 900

First number in the 30th row + 58d = Last term in the 30th row

First number in the 30th row + 58 x 1 = 900 First number in the 30th row = 900 – 58 = 842
