**Exercise 9.2**

**Q1. Find the sum of odd integers from 1 to 2001.**

Ans. The series of odd integers from 1 to 2001 is an AP with common difference 2.

1 + 3 + 5 +………2001

From the series , we have

First-term of AP,a = 1, Common difference of AP,d = 2, Final term of the AP,a_{n}= 2001

Applying the formula for the sum of an AP

Where, S_{n}= Sum of the series, Here we don’t have the value of n, so first calculating the value of n from the formula for the n the term(a_{n})

a_{n}= a + (n -1) d

Putting the values of a,d and a_{n}

2001 = 1 + (n -1)2 = 1 + 2n -2 = 2n -1

2n = 2002

n = 1001

Hence, the sum of the integers from 1 to 2001 is = 1002001

**Q2.Find the sum of all natural numbers lying between 100 and 1000. which are multiple of 5.**

Ans.The natural numbers between 100 and 1000 divisible by 5 is a series of AP, written as bellow

105 + 110 + 115 +……..995

Where, first term, a = 105, common difference, d = 5 and n th term, a_{n}=995

Finding the value of n from the following formula

a_{n}= a + (n -1)d

995 = 105 + (n -1)5

5n – 5 + 105 = 995

5n = 995 -100 = 895

n = 179

Now applying the following formula for sum of the AP

Substituting the value of terms we know

= 179 × 550 = 98450

Hence the required sum of the given AP is =98450

**Q3. In an AP, the first term is 2 and the sum of the first five terms is one-fourth of the next five terms. Show that 20 th term is -112.**

Ans.Let the common difference of the given AP is = d,First term of the given AP is , a = 2

Therefore AP is written as , 2, 2 + d, 2 + 2d, 2 + 3d……..

Considering the first 5 terms and next 5 terms, total terms =10

The sum of first 5 terms = 2× 5 +(d +2d+3d+4d)= 10 +10d

The sum of next 5 terms =2×5 + (5d +6d +7d+8d+9d) =10 +35d

According to question

10 +10d = 1/4(10 + 35d)

10 + 10 d = 10/4 + 35d/4

10d -35d/4 = 10/4 -10

(40d -35d)/4 = (10 -40)/4

5d = -30

d = -6

Therefore 20 the term = a +(n-1)d = 2 + (20 -1)(-6) = 2 -114 =-112

**Q4.How many terms of the A.P.-6 ,-11/2 , -5 ,… are needed to give the sum -25?**

Ans.The given AP -6, -11/2, -5……

Let there are n number of terms to give sum of -25,where first term,a = -6, common difference,d = -11/2+6 =1/12

Where S_{n }= -25

Putting the values of a, d and of S_{n}

n(n -25) = -100

n² – 25n +100 = 0

n² – 20n – 5n +100 =0

n(n – 20) – 5(n – 20) = 0

(n – 20)(n – 5) = 0

n = 20, 5

Therefore number of terms of the series to give the sum -25 either are 20 or 5.

**Q5.In an A.P., if p ^{th} term is 1/q and q^{th} term is 1/p, prove that the sum of first pq terms is 1/2(pq + 1), where p ≠ q.**

Ans.The n the term of AP is given as following

a_{n}= a + (n -1) d

where a is the first term and d is the common difference of AP

We are given

p^{th} term= 1/q

q^{th} term = 1/p

Subtracting equation (ii) from (i)

Putting the value of d in equation (i)

Now, applying the following formula for the sum of n the term of AP

Putting the value a = d =1/pq and n = pq

Therefore the sum of pq terms of the series is 1/2(pq +1)

**Q6.If a sum of a certain number of terms of the A.P.25, 22, 19, …is 116. Find the last term?**

Ans.The sum of the given series is A.P.25, 22, 19, …is 116

a = 25, d = 22-25 = -3 and S_{n}= 116

232 = n(50 -3n+3)

50n -3n² +3n -232= 0

-3n² + 53n -232 = 0

3n² – 53n + 232 = 0

3n² -24n – 29n + 232 = 0

3n(n – 8) – 29(n -8) =0

(n – 8)(3n – 29) =0

n = 8, n = 29/3

n can not equal to 29/3 since it is not a natural number,so neglecting this value of n

Therefore n = 8

Now the last term of the series is

a_{n}= a + (n-1)⇒a_{5} a= 25 +(8-1)(-3) = 25-21 = 4

Hence the last term of the given series is =4

**Q7.Find the sum to n terms of the A.P.,whose K ^{th }term is 5K + 1.**

Ans. We are given the K^{th }term is 5K + 1

a_{k}= 5K + 1

Substituting k=1,2,3….etc we get the first, second, third and other terms of the AP

a_{1}= 5×1 + 1= 6,

a_{2}= 5×2+ 1 =11

a_{3}= 5×3+ 1 =16

…..and so on

Hence , the AP is 6,11,16………

Where a = 6, d= 11 -6 = 5

Applying the formula used for sum of n the of an AP

Substituting the values of a and d

Therefore the sum of the n the term of AP is n/2(5n +7)

**Q8.If the sum of n terms of an A.P. is (pn +qn²), where p and q are constants, find the common difference.**

Ans. We are given the sum of n terms of an AP= pn +qn²

S_{n} = pn + qn²

Substituting n=1,2,3…we get the sum of the 1 term,2 terms,3 terms etc.

S_{1} = p×1 + q×1² =p + q, sum of 1 term =first term=p +q

S_{2} = p×2 + q×2² =2p +4q, second term =sum of 2 terms – first term=2p+4q -p-q=p+3q

Hence the AP is p+q,p+3q,……

Therefore the common difference of AP = (p+3q) -(p +q) =2q

**Q9.The sum of n terms of two arithmetic progressions are in the ratio 5n + 4 : 9n + 6. Find the ratio of their 18 ^{th} terms.**

Ans. We are given the ratio of two arithmetic progression

= 5n + 4 : 9n + 6

Let the first terms of both of the AP are a and a’and common differences are d and d’

The ratio of the sum of their n terms is given as follows

Writing the LHS of the above equation in the form of a +(n -1)d

…….(i)

The ratio between 18 th terms of both AP is

Comparing both sides

We have treated LHS of (i) as the ratio of n th terms of the series,so putting n =35 in RHS of (i) we get the required ratio

Therefore the ratio between 18 th term of both AP is 179 : 321

**Q10.If the sum of first p terms of an A.P. is equal to the sum of the first q terms, then find the sum of the first (p + q) terms.**

Ans.Let the first term of the AP is a and common difference is d

We are given

Sum of first p terms = Sum of first q terms

2ap +p²d -pd = 2aq +q²d -qd

2a(p-q) +(p² -q²)d-(p -q)d = 0

2a(p-q) +(p -q)(p+q)d-(p -q)d = 0

2a + d(p+q -1) = 0

The sum of first (p + q) terms is given as

Putting the value of d

Therefore the sum of first (p+q) term is 0

**Q11. Sum of the first p,q and r terms of an AP are a,b and c respectively .Prove that**

Ans. We are given sum of the first p,q and r terms of an AP are a,b and c respectively

Therefore

The sum of q terms = b

The sum of r terms = c

Multiplying (i) by (q-r), (ii) by (r-p) and (iii) by (p -q) and then adding all three equations

= 0 +0 = 0

Hence proved

**Q12.The ratio of the sums of the m and n terms of an AP is m² : n² .Show that the ratio of m th and n th term is (2m -1) : (2n -1)**

Ans.We are given

Putting m = p and n = q in above equation

Treating denominator and numerator of LHS as a n th and m th term

…..(i)

The ratio of m th term and n th term is

…(ii)

Comparing (i) and (ii)

Putting the value of p 2m -1 and q= 2n -1 in RHS of equation (i)

Therefore the ratio between m th and n th terms is 2m -1 : 2n -1

**Q13.If sum of n terms of an AP is 3n² +5n and its m th term is 164.Find the value of m.**

Ans. We are given the sum of n terms

S_{n} = 3n² +5n

Substituting the value of n =1,2,3.. we get the sum of 1 terms, 2 terms, 3 terms..etc

S_{1} = 3×1² +5×1 = 3 +5 = 8, sum of 1 terms = First term of AP

S_{2} = 3×2² +5×2 = 12 + 10 = 22, Second term = Sum of two term – first term =22-8 =14

Therefore AP is 8,14,20……

d = 14 – 8 = 6

We are given

m the term = 164

8 + (m -1)6 = 164

8 + 6m -6 = 164

6m = 162

m = 27

Hence, the value of m is 27

**Q14. Insert five numbers between 8 and 26 such that resulting sequence is an AP.**

Ans. Let 5 numbers inserted between 8 and 26 are A_{1} , A_{2,} A_{3,} A_{4} and A_{5}

The sequence including 5 inserted numbers is

8 A_{1} , A_{2,} A_{3,} A_{4} ,A_{5} 26

Where n = 7, 7 th term = 26, a = 8

So, a_{n }= a + (n -1)d

26 = 8 + 6d

6d =18

d = 3

Therefore

A_{1}= a +d = 8 +3 = 11, A_{2}= 8 + 2d = 8 +6 =14, A_{3}= 14 + d= 14 +3= 17,A_{4}=17+3=20,A_{5}=20+3 = 23

Hence, the 5 inserted numbers are 11, 14, 17,20 and 23

Ans. The AM of a and b is = (a +b)/2

According to question, we have

2a^{n}+ 2b^{n} = a^{n}+ b.a^{n-1}+ a.b^{n-1}+b^{n}

2a^{n}+ 2b^{n} – a^{n}-b^{n}=b.a^{n-1}+ a.b^{n-1}

a^{n}+b^{n}=b.a^{n-1}+ a.b^{n-1}

a^{n}-b.a^{n-1}=a.b^{n-1}-b^{n}

a^{n-1}(a – b) = b^{n-1}(a -b)

a^{n-1}= b^{n-1}

n – 1 = 0

n = 1

Thus, the value of n is 1.

**Q16.Between 1 and 31, m numbers have been inserted such a way that the resulting sequence is an A.P.and the ratio of 7 ^{th} and (m – 1)^{th }numbers is 5: 9. Find the value of m.**

Ans. Let the inserted numbers are b,c,d,e…..between 1 and 31

So, the sequence is 1, b,c,d,e…..31

Number of terms in the sequence are = m+2

(m+2)^{th }term is = 31

31 = 1 + (m+ 2-1)d

31 = 1 + (m+1)d

d = 30/(m+1)

Observing the term of sequence we get that if inserted number is n^{th} then it is the (n+1)^{th }term of the series

∴ inserted 7^{th} term = 8^{th }term of the series = 1 + 7d = 1 +(7×30)/(m+1) =(m+211)/(m+1)

inserted (m-1)^{th }number = m^{th }term of the series = 1 +(m -1)d =1+(m-1)×30/(m+1)=(m+1+30m-30)/(m+1) = (31m -29)/(m+1)

According to the question

9m + 1899 = 155m – 145

9m -155m = -145 -1899

-146 m = -2044

m = 14

Hence, m = 14

**Q17.A man starts repaying a loan as first installment of Rs.100.If he increases the installment by Rs 5 every month, What amount will he pay in the 30 ^{th }installment?**

Ans. According to the question, the sequence of instalments every month is

100, 105, 110,115…….

Where a = 100, d = 5

30^{th }installment = 30^{th }term of the above series = a + ( 30 – 1)d = 100 +29×5 =100+145=245

Hence the 30^{th } installments is = Rs 245

**Q18.The difference between the two consecutive interior angles of a polygon is 5º. If the smallest angle is 120º, find the number of sides of polygon.**

Ans. We are given the difference between the two consecutive interior angles of a polygon is = 5º, the smallest angle is =120º, let the number of sides = n

According to question sequence of the interior angles is

120º, 125º, 130º…….

Where a = 120, d = 5

The sum of interior angles of a polygon is given as follows

S_{n}= 180 (n -2)

We also have the sum of AP

Therefore

Putting the value of a and d

235n + 5n² = 360n – 720

5n² – 125n +720 = 0

n² – 25n + 144 = 0

n² – 16n – 9n+ 144 = 0

n( n – 16) – 9(n -16) = 0

(n -16)(n -9) = 0

n = 16, 9

Therefore the polygon will have the number of sides 16 or 9
