Write first four terms of the A.P. when the first term a and the common differenced are given as follows:

a = -2, d = 0

Advertisements

Solution

a = - 2, d = 0

Let the series be a1, a2, a3, a4

a1 = a = -2

a2 = a1 + d = - 2 + 0 = - 2

a3 = a2 + d = - 2 + 0 = - 2

a4 = a3 + d = - 2 + 0 = - 2

Therefore, the series will be - 2, - 2, - 2, - 2 …

First four terms of this A.P. will be - 2, - 2, - 2 and - 2.
