Question

# Find the $$60^{th}$$ term of the AP 8, 10, 12, ., if it has a total of 60 terms and hence find the sum of its last 10 terms.

Solution

## A.P is 8,10,12......................Then first term is 8 and common difference is 2.$$a_{n}=a+(n-1)d$$.Then $$a_{60}=8+(60-1)2=8+59\times 2=126$$Last 10 term =$$a_{51},a_{52}..................a_{60}$$Then $$a_{51}=8+(51-1)2=108$$So total of last 10 terms=$$\frac{10}{2}\left [ 108\times 2+(10-1)2 \right ]=216+81=234\times 5=1170$$Mathematics
