AP 6

Calculate the first five items of an arithmetic sequence if it is given:
a2 – a3 + a5 = 20
a1 + a6 = 38

Result

a =  14
a2 =  16
a3 =  18
a4 =  20
a5 =  22

Solution:


(a+d) – (a+2d) + (a+4d) = 20
a + (a+5d) = 38

a+3d = 20
2a+5d = 38

a = 14
d = 2

Calculated by our linear equations calculator.
