#### Question

Insert five numbers between 8 and 26 such that the resulting sequence is an A.P.

#### Solution

Let A1, A2, A3, A4, and A5 be five numbers between 8 and 26 such that

8, A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, 26 is an A.P.

Here, = 8, = 26, n = 7

Therefore, 26 = 8 + (7 – 1) d

⇒ 6d = 26 – 8 = 18

⇒ = 3

A1 = a + d = 8 + 3 = 11

A2 = a + 2d = 8 + 2 × 3 = 8 + 6 = 14

A3 = a + 3d = 8 + 3 × 3 = 8 + 9 = 17

A4 = a + 4= 8 + 4 × 3 = 8 + 12 = 20

A5 = a + 5d = 8 + 5 × 3 = 8 + 15 = 23

Thus, the required five numbers between 8 and 26 are 11, 14, 17, 20, and 23

Is there an error in this question or solution?
