Solution for Find the middle term of the A.P. 213, 205, 197, ---, 37. - CBSE Class 10 - Mathematics

Question

Find the middle term of the A.P. 213, 205, 197, ---, 37.

Solution

Here,

a = 213

d = 205213 = 8

Let the number of terms in the given AP be n.

We know

an=a+(n1)d

37=213+(n1)(8)

8(n1)=176

n1=22

n=23

Thus, there are 23 terms in the given AP.

So, the ((23+1)/2)th term, i.e. the 12th term, will be the middle term.

a12=213+(121)(8)

a12=21388

a12=125

Thus, 125 is the middle term of the given AP
