  1. garbled English, but I think you want

    6/2 (2a+5d) = 72
    a+d = 7(a+64d)

    solve that for a and d, and then evaluate

    10/2 (2a+9d)

  2. S6=72
    6a+15d=72 call as eq 1
    6a+27d=0 call as eq 2

    Consider the eq 1&2 simultaneously

    6a+15d=72 eq 1
    6a+27d=0 eq 2

    Subtract 1&2

    We get


    evaluate d=-6 in eq 2

    We get a=27

    To find s10
