3. let 'a' is the first term of AP. 'd' is a common difference of AP.
and the AP is : a,a+d,a+2d..........
according to ques.
a1+a2=4
a+a+d=4......................................(1)
a10=19
a+9d=19......................................(2)
after solving the equation 1 and 2 we get the value of 'a' and 'd' is 1 and 2 respectively.

according to question we need to find the value of a5+a6=?

a+4d+a+5d=2a+9d ..............(3)

after puttig the value 'a' and 'd' in the 3 equation

we get, 2a+9d = 20
