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.
a2=a+d=16a_{2}=a+d=16
a3=a2+d=18a_{3}=a_{2}+d=18
a4=a3+d=20a_{4}=a_{3}+d=20
a5=a4+d=22a_{5}=a_{4}+d=22



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
