Solution:

Question 2.
Show that the sequence defined by an = 3n² – 5 is not an A.P.
Solution:

Question 3.
The general term of a sequence is given by an = -4n + 15. Is the sequence an A.P.? If so, find its 15th term and the common difference.
Solution:
General term of a sequence
an = -4n + 15

Question 4.
Write the sequence with nth term :
(i) an = 3 + 4n
(ii) an = 5 + 2n
(iii) an = 6 – n
(iv) an = 9 – 5n
Show that all of the above sequences form A.P.
Solution:
