1 1 Example 1: Find the 10 th term and the nth term for the sequence 7, 10, 13, …. Solution: U 10 = Un=Un=

2 2 Example 2 Find the three numbers in an arithmetic progression whose sum is 24 and whose product is 480. Solution Let the three numbers be (a-d), a, (a+d) where d is the common difference. (a-d) +a + (a+d) = 24 3a = 24 a = 8 (a-d)(a)(a+d)=480 Substituting a =8, we get

3 3 When d = 2, required numbers are 6, 8, 10 When d = -2, required numbers are 10, 8, 6

6 6 Example 4 Find the sum of the positive integers which are less than 500 and are not multiples of 11. Solution Required sum= Sum of integers from 1 to 499 (S I ) Sum of multiples of 11(S II )

7 7 Required sum = S I -S II =124750-11385 =113365

8 8 Example 5 The sum of the first 10 terms of an A.P. is 145 and the sum of the next 6 terms is 231 Find (i) the 31 st term, and (ii) the least number of terms required for the sum to exceed 2000.

10 10 (1) (2): From (2): (ii)Find the least number of terms required for the sum to exceed 2000. Let n be the least number of terms required for

11 11 Consider

12 12 + + Since n must be a positive integer, n > 36.7 Hence, the least number of terms required is 37. For

13 13 Example 6 Given that the fifth term of a geometric progression is and the third term is 9. Find the first term and the common ratio if all the terms in the G.P. are positive. (1) (2)

14 14 (1) (2): Since all the terms in the G.P. are positive, r > 0 From (2):

15 15 Example 7 Three consecutive terms of a geometric progression are and 81. Find the value of x. If 81 is the fifth term of the geometric progression, find the seventh term.

16 16 Given 81 is the fifth term, find the seventh term: U 5 = ar 4 = 81 U 7 = ar 6

19 19 Example 9 A geometric series has first term 1 and the common ratio r, where r 1, is positive. The sum of the first five terms is twice the sum of the terms from the 6 th to 15 th inclusive. Prove that

20 20 Solution Given Since and a = 1, we have

21 21 Let So the equation becomes Let f(x) = Since f(1) = 2 – 3 + 1 = 0 (x –1) is a factor of f(x). Comparing coefficient of x:

22 22 Hence, Sinceand r > 0, (r<0)

23 23 Sum to infinity, S (or ) = The sum to infinity exists (the series converges or series is convergent) provided Example 10 Determine whether the series given below converge. If they do, give their sum to infinity. (a) G.P. with >1 Does not converge

24 24 (b) G.P. with Series converges <1

25 25 (c) G.P. with >1 Does not converge

26 26 A geometric series has first term a and the common ratio. Show that the sum to infinity of the geometric progression is. Example 11 Solution (shown)

27 27 Example 12 A geometric series has first term a and common ratio r. S is the sum to infinity of the series, T is the sum to infinity of the even- numbered terms (i.e. ) of the series. Given that S is four times the value of T, find the value of r. Given S = 4T, we have common ratio r 2
