# In an A.P., Ten Times of Its Tenth Term is Equal to Thirty Times of Its 30th Term. Find Its 40th Term. - Mathematics

Sum

In an A.P., ten times of its tenth term is equal to thirty times of its 30th term. Find its 40th term.

#### Solution

The general term of an A.P is given by

t_n = a + (n -1)d

Given

10 x t_10 = 30 xx t_30

=> 10 xx (a + 9d) = 30 xx (a + 29d)

=> a + 9d = 3a + 87d

=> 2a + 78d = 0

=> a + 39d = 0

=> a = -39d

Now t_40 = a + 39d = -39d + 39d = 0
