    what don't you get?

    T4 = a+3d
    T6 = a+5d
    a+3d + a+5d = 42
    2a + 8d = 42
    a+4d = 21

    T3 = a+2d
    T9=a+8d
    a+2d + a+8d = 52
    2a + 10d = 52
    a+5d = 26

    a+4d = 21
    a+5d = 26
    d = 5
    so a=1

    sum of T1-T10 = 10/2(1+46) = 235

    AP = 1 6 11 16 21 26 31 36 41 46 . . .
