A circle centre O is divided into n unequal sectors. The angles subtended at O by the
sectors form an arithmetic progression.
Given the smallest angle subtended at O is 12o and the largest angle subtended at O is
36o, find
(a) the value of n,
(b) the angle subtended at O by the fifth largest angle.

The second term of a geometric progression is greater than its first term by 3. If the third
term of the progression is 16, find the possible values of the common ratio, and hence, in
the case where the common ratio is an integer, determine the fifth term of the
progression.
