Ex 5.1 ,3 For the following A.P.s, write the first term and the common difference. (i) 3, 1, 1, 3 3, 1, 1, 3 First term = a = 3 Common difference = d = Difference between 2 consecutive terms = Second term First Term = 1 3 = 2 Hence , a = 3 , d = 2 Ex 5.1 ,3 For the following A.P.s, write the first term and the common difference. (ii) 5, 1, 3, 7 5, 1, 3, 7, First term = 5 Common difference = d = difference between 2 consecutive term = Difference between second and first term = 1 ( 5) = 1 + 5 = 4 Hence, a = 5 & d = 4 Ex 5.1 ,3 For the following A.P.s, write the first term and the common difference. (iii) 1/3, 5/3, 9/3 , 13/3 1/3 , 5/3 , 9/3 , 13/3 First term of AP = a = 1/3 Common difference = d = Difference of 2 consecutive terms = Difference of second and first term = 5/3 1/3 = (5 1)/3 = 4/3 Hence, a = 1/3 , d = 4/3 Ex 5.1 ,3 For the following A.P.s, write the first term and the common difference. (iv) 0.6, 1.7, 2.8, 3.9 0.6, 1.7, 2.8, 3.9, First term of AP = a = 0.6 Common difference = d = Difference of 2 consecutive terms = Difference of second and first term = 1.7 0.6 = 1.1 Hence, a = 0.6 & d = 1.1
