I've been trying to solve this for like an hour but I just can't figure out how to do it! I'd really appreciate your help! Thanks!!

**Reiny**, Saturday, January 14, 2012 at 4:58pm"The sum of the 4th and the 14th term of an arithmetic sequence equals 22" ----> a+3d + a+13d = 22

2a + 16d = 22

a + 8d = 11 (#1)

"The 9th term is 4 larger than the 4th term" ---> a+8d - (a+3d) = 4

5d = 4

d = 4/5

a = 11-8d

a = 11 - 8(4/5) = 23/5

check:

t4 = 23/5 + 3(4/5) = 35/5 = 7

t9 = 23/5 + 8(4/5) = 55/5 = 11

t14 = 23/5 + 13(4/5) = 75/5 = 15

11+15 = 22

11-7=4

all is good
