common difference and the sum of the first 99 terms. 10. If the 11 th term of an A.P whose first term is a and common difference is 3, is equal to 17 th term of another A.P whose first term is also a and whose common difference is d, find d. If the sum of 20 terms of the first of these arithmetic progressions exceeds by 145 the sum of 14 terms of the second, find the first term. Show also that, if the n th term of the first progression is equal to the Pth term of the second 5p = 3n +2 11. Find a and b such that 7.2, a, b, 3 are inA.P.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
