Homework Help: Math

Posted by Crystal on Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 4:51pm.

Determine the sum of the first 20 terms of the arithmetic sequence in which ...

f) the 7th term is 43 and the 13th term is 109

I know you can make two equations :

43 = a + 6d and 109 = a + 12 d

And subtract them to get d = 11

But I know there's another way to get d, that you can just quickly do on your calculator. But I can't remember how to do it! It had something to do with dividing the number of terms or something...? I could probably figure it out after some trial and error but I just want to make sure I have the proper method down, so if someone could explain a clear and concise method to me, I would really appreciate it! I know it's really simple... I'm just so burned out right now. Too much studying, too much stress!
