  1. T3 and T7 are 4 terms apart, so if the common difference is d, then 4d=13-5, so d=2.

    Now T30 is 23 terms past T7, so add 23*2 to T7 and you get T30=59

  2. Third term a+2d is 5
    7th. Term a+6d is 13
    By solving using elimination method,
    -4d= 8
    d=-2
    Substitute d value to third term
    a-4 = 5
    a= 9
    Therefore 30th term is a + 29d = 9+29(-2) = 9-58 = -49
