1. term(n) = a+(n1)d
you have a = 3, d = 2 , n = ??
33 = 3 + (n1)(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 + (n1)(d) )
