**Reiny**, Thursday, February 16, 2012 at 8:43amso the sum of the first 9 terms would be 99

sum(5) = 30 ---> (5/2)(2a + 4d) = 30

5(2a+4d) = 60

2a + 4d = 12

a + 2d = 6

sum(9) = 99 ----> (9/2)(2a + 8d) = 99

2a + 8d = 22

a + 4d = 11

subtract them

2d = 5

d = 5/2 or 2.5

then a = 1

the arithmetic sequence is

1 , 3.5, 6, 8.5 , ...
