# Find the Indicated Terms in the Following Sequences Whose Nth Terms Are: an = 5n - 4; A12 and A15 - Mathematics

Find the indicated terms in the following sequences whose nth terms are:

an = 5n - 4; a12 and a15

#### Solution

Here, we are given the nth term for various sequences. We need to find the indicated terms of the A.P.

a_n = 5n - 4

We need to find a_12 and a_15

Now to find a_12 term we use n = 12 we get

a_12 = 5(12) - 4

= 60 - 4

= 56

Also to find a_15 term we use n = 15, we get

a_15 = 5(15) - 4

= 75 - 4

= 71

Thus a_12 = 56 and a_15 = 71

Is there an error in this question or solution?
