**Exercise 5.4**

**Long Answer Type Questions (Q. No. 1-5):**

**Question. 1** The sum of the first five terms of an AP and the sum of the first seven terms of the same AP is 167. If the some of the first ten terms of this AP is 235, find the sum of its first twenty terms.

**Solution.**

Let the first term, common difference and the number of terms of given AP be a, d and n, respectively.

**Question. 2 Find the**

**(i)** Sum of those integers between 1 and 500 which are multiples of 2 as well as of 5.

**(ii)** Sum of those integers from 1 to 500 which are multiples of 2 as well as of 5.

**(iii)** Sum of those integers from 1 to 500 which are multiples of 2 or 5.

**Solution.**

**(i)** We first find the LCM of 2 and 5 which is 10.

Now all those integers which are multiples of 10 are also the multiples of 2 and 5.

Therefore, multiples of 2 as well as of 5 between 1 and 500 are 10, 20, 30, ......, 490 ….(i)

Series (i) forms an AP with first term, a = 10 and common difference, d = 20 – 10 = 10

Let total number of terms of this AP be n.

Therefore, nth term of AP, a_{n} = Last term, *l* = 490

**(ii)** All those integers which are multiples of 10 (LCM of 2 and 5) are also the multiples of 2 and 5.

Therefore multiples of 2 as well as of 5 from 1 to 500 are 10, 20, 30, ......., 500 ….(i)

Here, (i) forms an AP with,

First term, a = 10

Common difference, d = 10

Let total number of terms of this AP be n.

Therefore, nth term of AP, a_{n} = Last term, *l* = 490

**(iii)** Since, multiples of 2 or 5 from 1 to 500 = Multiple of 2 from 1 to 500 + Multiples of 5 from 1 to 500 – Multiple of 10 from 1 to 500

= (2, 4, 6, ....., 500) + (5, 10, 15, ....., 500) – (10, 20, ....., 500) .....(i)

Let AP1 = 2, 4, 6, ....., 500

AP_{2} = 5, 10, 15, ....., 500

And AP_{3} = 10, 20, ....., 500

Let number of terms in AP_{1}, AP_{2} and AP_{3} be n_{1}, n_{2} and n_{3} respectively.

Now formula for last term of an AP is given as:

*l* = an + (n – 1)d ….(ii)

For AP_{1},

500 = 2 + (n_{1} – 1)2 ….[Using (ii)]

⟹ 250 = 1+ (n_{1} – 1)

⟹ n_{1} = 250

For AP_{2},

500 = 5 + (n_{2} – 1)5 ….[Using (ii)]

⟹ 100 = 1 + (n_{2} – 1)

⟹ n_{2} = 100

For AP_{3},

500 = 10 + (n_{3} – 1)10 ….[Using (ii)]

⟹ 250 = 1 + (n_{3} − 1)

⟹ n_{3} = 50

Thus, from equation (i),

Sum of Multiples of 2 or 5 from 1 to 500

= Sum of (2, 4, 6, ...... 500) + Sum of (5, 10, ..... 500) – Sum of (10, 20, ..... 500)

**Question. 3** The eighth term of an AP is half its second term and the eleventh term exceeds one-third of its fourth term by 1. Find the 15^{th} term.

**Solution.**

Let the first term and common difference of AP be a and d, respectively.

According to the first condition, we have:

**Question. 4** An AP consists of 37 terms. The sum of the three middle most terms is 225 and the sum of the last three terms is 429. Find the AP.

**Solution.**

Given, total number of terms, n = 37, which is odd.

**Question. 5 Find the sum of the integers between 100 and 200 that are**

**(i)** Divisible by 9.

**(ii)** Not divisible by 9.

**Solution.**

(i) The integers between 100 and 200 which is divisible by 9 are 108, 117, 126, ... 198 which form an AP with first term, a = 108 and common difference, d = 117 – 108 = 9

Let n be the number of terms between 100 and 200 which is divisible by 9.

Hence, required sum of the integers between 100 and 200 that are divisible by 9 is 1683.

(ii) The sum of the integers between 100 and 200 which is not divisible by 9 = (sum of total numbers between 100 and 200) – (Sum of total number between 100 and 200 which is divisible by 9). ....(i)

For terms between 100 and 200,

First term, a = 101, Common difference, d = 102 – 101 = 1 and a_{n} = *l* = 199

Using equation (i), Sum of the integers between 100 and 200 which

are not divisible by 9 = 14850 – 1683 [From solution of part (i)]

=13167
