Ex 5.3 ,13 Find the sum of first 15 multiples of 8. Multiples of 8 are 8, 16, 24,โ€ฆ Since difference is same, it is an AP We need to find sum of first 15 multiples We use formula Sn = ๐‘›/2 (2๐‘Ž+(๐‘›โˆ’1)๐‘‘) Here, n = 15, a = 8 & d = 16 โ€“ 8 = 8 Putting values in formula Sn = ๐‘›/2 (2๐‘Ž+(๐‘›โˆ’1)๐‘‘) = 15/2(2ร—8+(15โˆ’1)ร—8) = 15/2 (16+14ร—8) = 15/2 (16+112) = 15/2ร—128 = 960 Therefore, the sum of first 15 multiples of 8 is 960
