Ex 5.2 ,10 If 17th term of an A.P. exceeds its 10th term by 7. Find the common difference. We know that an = a + (n 1) d So, a17 = a + (17 1) d a17 = a + 16d Also, a10 = a + (10 1)d a10 = a + 9d Given that 17th term of an A.P. exceeds its 10th term by 7 a17 a10 = 7 (a + 16d) (a + 9d) = 7 a + 16d a 9d = 7 a a + 16d 9d = 7 0 + 7d = 7 7d = 7 7d = 7 d = 7/7 d = 1 Therefore, common difference of the given AP is 1
