**Reiny**, Monday, January 21, 2013 at 10:34am1. term(n) = a+(n-1)d

you have a = 3, d = 2 , n = ??

33 = 3 + (n-1)(2)

30 = 2n - 2

28 = 2n

n = 14 ------ there are 14 terms

do the 2nd one the same way

for the other two, I don't know how you defined a sub n

for the last:

first find the number of terms in the same way I showed you

you have a = -15 , d = 12 , n = ?

once you find a and d

use

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