Question

If 5th term of a H.P. is 145 and 11th term is 169, then its 16th term will be



Solution

The correct option is A


Here 5th term of the corresponding

A.P. = a + 4d = 45          ........(i)

and 11th term of the corresponding

A.P. = a + 10d =69         .........(ii)

From (i) and (ii), we get a =29, d = 4 

Therefore 16th term of the corresponding A.P.

= a + 15d = 29 + 15times4 = 89.

Hence 16th term of the H.P. is 189
