The chapter comes under Paper-I. From this chapter 2 Marks questions - 2 (2 ×2 = 4M),

1 Mark question - 1 (1×1 = 1M), 4 Marks questions - 2 (2×4 = 8M) and 6 objective bits (6×1/2

= 3M), altogether 16 Marks easily can be scored. Even though this chapter is a bit lengthy,

there are few questions which will be often repeated in the public exams. The material given

below will be very much useful for S.S.C. appearing students.

Eg: 1) 2, 5, 8, 11, 14,.........

2) 1, 10, 100, 1000,......

3) 1/2, 1/4, 1/6, 1/8,.......

1. Arithmetic Progression (A.P.)

2. Geometric Progression (G.P)

3. Harmonic Progression (H.P)

1. Arithmetic Progression: A progression in which, except the first term, each term is

obtained by adding a fixed number to the term immediately preceding it is called arithmetic

progression.

♦ The fixed number is called "common difference" and it is denoted by "d".

♦ The terms of the progression are denoted by t1, t2, t3, t4, ......., first term t1 is also denoted

by "a".

♦ Common difference (d) = t2 – t1 = t3 – t2 = t4 – t3 ........

d = t 2 − t1

d = t2 – t1

= 16 – 21

= –5

♦ nth term or general term of A.P. t n = a + (n − 1)d

Determine 'k' so that k+2, 4k–6 and 3k–2 are the three consecutive terms of an A.P.

Sol:

k+2, 4k–6, 3k–2 are in A. P.

t1 t2 t3

t2 – t1 = t3 – t2

⇒ (4k – 6) – (k + 2) = (3k – 2) – (4k – 6)

⇒ 4k – 6 – k –2 = 3k – 2 – 4k + 6

⇒ 3k – 8 = –k + 4

⇒ 3k + k = 4 + 8

⇒ 4 k = 12

⇒k=3

Problem: 3

(2 Marks)

Which term in the A.P i.e 5, 2, –1,......is –22?

Sol:

5, 2, –1, ........ are in A.P

a = 5, d = t2 – t1 = 2 – 5 = –3

Let tn = –22

a+(n – 1)d = –22

5+(n – 1) (–3) = –22

5 – 3n + 3 = –22

–3n = –22 –8

a = −6, d = − (− 6 ) = =

2 2 2

Let Sn = –25

n

⇒ 2a + (n − 1)d = − 25

n n 25

⇒ − = − 25

2 2 2

n

⇒ [n − 25] = −25

4

⇒ n2 – 25n = –100

⇒ n2 – 25n + 100 = 0

⇒ n2 – 20n – 5n + 100 = 0

⇒ n(n–20) –5 (n–20) = 0

⇒ (n–20) (n–5) = 0

⇒ n – 20 = 0 n–5=0

⇒ n = 20 n=5

∴ S20 or S5 = –25

(2 Marks)

Insert 5 A.M's between 4 and 22.

Sol:

Let a1, a2, a3, a4, a5 be 5 A.M's between 4 and 22.

Then A.P is as follows

4, a1, a2, a3, a4, a5, 22

t1 t2 t3 t4 t5 t6 t7

Here a = 4

t7 = 22

a +(7–1)d = 22

a + 6d = 22

4 + 6d = 22

6d = 22 – 4

The product of two numbers is 91 and their arithmetic mean is 10. Find the two numbers.

Sol:

Let the two numbers be a and b.

Given that ab = 91 ______ (1)

a+b

= 10

2

⇒ a + b = 20 ______ (2)

We know that

(a – b)2 = (a + b)2 – 4ab

= 202 – 4×91

= 400 – 364

= 36

⇒ a − b = 36

⇒ a – b = ±6 ______ (3)

a− b =6

a + b = 20

(i) If − − − − − −

2 a = 26

13

a = 13

Substitute a value in (1)

13 + b = 20

b = 20 – 13

a − b = −6

a + b = 20

(ii) If − − − − − −

2 a = 14

a=7

Substitute a value in (1)

7 + b = 20

b = 20 – 7

b = 13

∴ Required numbers are 13, 7 or 7, 13.

Geometric Progression: A progression in which except the first term each term is obtained

by multiplying a fixed number to the term immediately preceding it is called "Geometric

Progression". This multiplying term is called "common ratio" and it is denoted by "r".
