For what value of 'n ' the nth terms of two A.P. 's 63,65,67,.......and 3,10,17,........ are equal.

PLEASE SEND THE SOLUTION SOON. IT IS VERY URGENT.

#### Answers

n th term is given by a+(n-1)d

thus for the first a.p. we have nth term =63 +(n-1)(2)= 63 +2n -2 = 61+2n

and for the second a.p. nth term is =3 +(n-1)7= 7n -4

now they equal when 7n -4= 61+2n

5n=65

n=13 ans

63, 65, 67, …

*a* = 63

*d* = *a* _{2} − *a* _{1} = 65 − 63 = 2

*n* ^{th} term of this A.P. = *a* _{ n } = *a* + (*n* − 1) *d*

*a* _{ n }= 63 + (*n* − 1) 2 = 63 + 2*n* − 2

*a* _{ n } = 61 + 2*n* (1)

3, 10, 17, …

*a* = 3

*d* = *a* _{2} − *a* _{1} = 10 − 3 = 7

*n* ^{th} term of this A.P. = 3 + (*n* − 1) 7

*a* _{ n } _{ }= 3 + 7*n* − 7

*a* _{ n } = 7*n* − 4 (2)

It is given that, *n* ^{th} term of these A.P.s are equal to each other.

Equating both these equations, we obtain

61 + 2*n* = 7*n* − 4

61 + 4 = 5*n*

5*n* = 65

*n* = 13

Therefore, 13^{th} terms of both these A.P.s are equal to each other.

Hi Farha, thanku for the solution.

May I know in which school ur studing.

a = 63 , a = 3

d = 2 , d= 7

acc. to an formula

63 + ( n - 1 ) 2 = 3 + ( n - 1) 7

63 + 2n - 2 = 3 + 7n - 7

63 - 3 = 7n - 2n -7 + 2

60 = 5n - 5

60 + 5 = 5n

65 = 5n

65/ 5 = n

n = 13

if right then give me thumbs up
