1.

a+ 34d = 1238

a+69d = 1483

subtract them

35d = 245

d = 7

then in the 1st equation:

a + 238 = 1238

a = 1000

so term(105) = 1000 + 104(7) = 1728

2.

ar^2 = 99

ar^4 = 891

divide the 2nd by the third.

r^2 = 9

r = ±3

in the 1st

a(9) = 99

a = 11

then term(7)

= ar^6

= 11(3)^6 = 8019
