### SCERT Maharashtra Question Bank solutions for 10th Standard SSC Mathematics 1 Algebra Maharashtra State Board 2021 Chapter 3 Arithmetic Progression Q.2 (A)

#### Complete the following activity [2 Marks]

Find the sum of first 1000 positive integers.

Activity :- Let 1 + 2 + 3 + ........ + 1000

Using formula for the sum of first n terms of an A.P.,

S_{n} = `square`

S_{1000} = `square/2 (1 + 1000)`

= 500 × 1001

= `square`

Therefore, Sum of the first 1000 positive integer is `square`

Which term of following A.P. is −940.

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

Activity :- Here a = `square`, d = `square`, t_{n} = −940

According to formula, t_{n} = a + (n − 1)d

−940 = `square`

n = `square`

For an A.P., If t_{1} = 1 and t_{n} = 149 then find S_{n}.

Activitry :- Here t_{1}= 1, t_{n} = 149, S_{n} = ?

S_{n} = `"n"/2 (square + square)`

= `"n"/2 + square`

= `square` n, where n = 75

t_{19} = ? for the given A.P., 9, 4, −1, −6 ........

Activity :- Here a = 9, d = `square`

t_{n} = a + (n − 1)d

t_{19} = 9 + (19 − 1) `square`

= 9 + `square`

= `square`

Common difference, d = ? for the given A.P., 7, 14, 21, 28 ........

Activity :- Here t_{1} = 7, t_{2} = 14, t_{3} = 21, t_{4} = `square`

t_{2} − t_{1} = `square`

t_{3} – t_{2} = 7

t_{4} – t_{3} = `square`

Therefore, common difference d = `square`

### SCERT Maharashtra Question Bank solutions for 10th Standard SSC Mathematics 1 Algebra Maharashtra State Board 2021 Chapter 3 Arithmetic Progression Q.2 (B)

In an A.P. a = 2 and d = 3, then find S_{12}

Find first four terms of the sequence t_{n} = n + 2

In an A.P., a = 10 and d = −3 then find its first four terms

1, 7, 13, 19 ...... find 18^{th} term of this A.P.

In an A.P. a = 4 and d = 0, then find first five terms

If a = 6 and d = 10, then find S_{10}

Decide whether the given sequence 24, 17, 10, 3, ...... is an A.P.? If yes find its common term (t_{n})

### SCERT Maharashtra Question Bank solutions for 10th Standard SSC Mathematics 1 Algebra Maharashtra State Board 2021 Chapter 3 Arithmetic Progression Q.3 (A)

#### Complete the following activity [3 Marks]

How many two-digit numbers are divisible by 5?

Activity :- Two-digit numbers divisible by 5 are, 10, 15, 20, ......, 95.

Here, d = 5, therefore this sequence is an A.P.

Here, a = 10, d = 5, t_{n} = 95, n = ?

t_{n} = a + (n − 1) `square`

`square` = 10 + (n – 1) × 5

`square` = (n – 1) × 5

`square` = (n – 1)

Therefore n = `square`

There are `square` two-digit numbers divisible by 5

Kalpana saves some amount every month. In first three months she saves ₹ 100, ₹ 150 and ₹ 200 respectively. In how many months will she save ₹ 1200?

Activity :- Kalpana’s monthly saving is ₹ 100, ₹ 150, ₹ 200, ......, ₹ 1200

Here, d = 50.Therefore this sequence is an A.P.

a = 100, d = 50, t_{n} = `square`, n = ?

t_{n} = a + (n – 1) `square`

`square` = 100 + (n – 1) × 50

`square/50` = n – 1

n = `square`

Therefore, she saves ₹ 1200 in `square` months.

Determine the sum of first 100 terms of given A.P. 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, ......

Activity :- Here, a = 12, d = `square`, n = 100, S_{100} = ?

S_{n} = `"n"/2 [square + ("n" - 1)"d"]`

S_{100} = `square/2 [24 + (100 - 1)"d"]`

= `50(24 + square)`

= `square`

= `square`

Find the sum of natural numbers between 1 to 140, which are divisible by 4.

Activity :- Natural numbers between 1 to 140 divisible by 4 are, 4, 8, 12, 16, ......, 136

Here d = 4, therefore this sequence is an A.P.

a = 4, d = 4, t_{n} = 136, S_{n} = ?

t_{n} = a + (n – 1)d

`square` = 4 + (n – 1) × 4

`square` = (n – 1) × 4

n = `square`

Now,

S_{n} = `"n"/2["a" + "t"_"n"]`

S_{n} = 17 × `square`

S_{n} = `square`

Therefore, the sum of natural numbers between 1 to 140, which are divisible by 4 is `square`

Decide whether 301 is term of given sequence 5, 11, 17, 23, .....

Activity :- Here, d = `square`, therefore this sequence is an A.P.

a = 5, d = `square`

Let n^{th} term of this A.P. be 301

t_{n} = a + (n – 1) `square`

301 = 5 + (n – 1) × `square`

301 = 6n – 1

n = `302/6` = `square`

But n is not positive integer.

Therefore, 301 is `square` the term of sequence 5, 11, 17, 23, ......
