# Which term of following A.P. is −940. 50, 40, 30, 20 ........ Activity :- Here a = □, d = □, tn = −940 According to formula, tn = a + (n − 1)d −940 = □ n = □ - Algebra

Sum

Which term of following A.P. is −940.

50, 40, 30, 20 ........

Activity :- Here a = square, d = square, tn = −940

According to formula, tn = a + (n − 1)d

−940 = square

n = square

#### Solution

Here a = 50, d = 40 − 50 = −10, tn = −940

According to formula, tn = a + (n − 1)d

−940 = 50 + (n − 1)(−10)

∴ – 940 = 50 – 10n + 10

∴ – 940 = 60 – 10n

∴ 10n = 60 + 940

∴ 10n = 1000

∴ n = 1000/10

n = 100
