13 th ter of an AP is 4 times its 3rd term .if 5 th term is 16 then find sum of its first ten terms   the sum of first 7 term of Ap is 182 if its 4 th and 17 th term are in ratio1:5,find AP

Let a be the first term and d be the common difference of given A.P

13th term t13 = a+12d
3rd term t3 = a+2d
we are given : a+12d = 4(a+2d)  or 3a = 4d  or a/d = 4/3    ...........................(1)

5th term, t5 = a+4d = 16   ...........................(2)

Using eqn.(1) in eqn.(2)    (4/3)d+4d = 16  .....(3)

solving eqn.(3) for d, we get d = 3 ; hence a =(4/3)×3 = 4

Hence sum of  first ten terms, S10 = (10/2)[ 2×4 + 9×3 ] = 175

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Second question:

Sum of seven terms = S7 = (7/2) [ 2a + 6d ] = 182   or a+3d = 26 .....................(1)

By substituting a in eqn.(1), we get a =2 and d=8

Hence A.P is with first term a =2 and common difference d = 8
