  2. Let the 1st term be "a" and the 2nd term be "a+d" then 3rd term = a+2d = 10+a(i.e 10 more than the 1st term) and 5th term = 15+a+d(i.e 15 more than the 2nd term). Then 2d = 10(from 1st statement). This implies that d =5. Then the 7th term = a+6d =7a(7 times the 1st term). 6a = 6d =6(5) =30. Hence, a =30/6 = 5. Also, 8th term = a+7d =5+7(5) = 40 and 15th term = a+14d = 5+14(5) = 75. Finally their sum is 40+75 = 115. Thanks

    The sixth term of GP is 16 and the third term is 2.Find the first term and common ratio. 6th term =16 3rd term=2 So ar^5=16 and ar^2=2, then divide. So r^3=8, and r^3 =2^3. Therefore r =2 and a=1/2
