# AS sequence

In an arithmetic sequence is given the difference d = -3 and a71 = 455.

a) Determine the value of a62
b) Determine the sum of 71 members.

Correct result:

a62 =  482
s71 =  39760

#### Solution:

$a_{ 71} = 455; d=-3 \ \\ a_{ 71} = a_1 + (71-1)d \ \\ 455 = a_1 + (71-1)\cdot (-3) \ \\ a_1 = 455 - (-210) = 665 \ \\ \ \\ a_{ 62 } = a_1 + (62-1)d= 665 + 61\cdot (-3) = 482$
$s_{ 71 } = 71 \cdot \dfrac{a_1+a_{ 71 }}{2} = 71 \cdot \dfrac{ 665 + 455 }{2} = 39760$
