**Reiny**, Wednesday, September 30, 2009 at 9:08pmfrom your first equation :

a+4d + a+7d + a+10d = 10

3a + 21d = 10 (#1)

from your second equation :

a+6d + a+9d + a+12d = 12

3a 27d = 12 (#2)

subtract #2 - #1

6d = 2

d = 1/3

back in #1, 3a + 21(1/3) = 10

a = 1

then a+(kn-1)d = 11

1 + (k-1)(1/3) = 11

3 + k-1 = 33**k**= 31

check : term(31) = a+30d

= 1 + 30(1/3)

= 1 + 10 = 11 Yea!!!
