3)a=-12

d=3

t(5)=a+(n-1)d

=-12+(5-1)3

=0

s(50)=3625

hope it would be a help. :)

U2= a=8/9 U2=8/9 Un= arn-1 if n=2 U2= arn7-1 8/9=2(r6)

1) a=-20

Sn=250

. n=10

Sn=n/2(2a+(n-1)d)

250=10/2(2(-20)+(10-1)d)

250=5((-40)+(9)d)

250=-200+45d

250+200=45d

d=10

Un=a+(n-1)d

Un=-20*(10-1)10

Un=-20+900

Un=880

::the last term=880

2) a=-12

. Un=-6

d=-3

n=5

S5=5/2(2(-12)+(5-1)-3)

2.5(-24)+-12)

. 2.5(-36)

S5=-90
