if the 9th term of an AP is 0,prove that its 29th term is twice its 19th term.

to find any term of the A.P. we need its first term a and common diff d right?
so our aim should be to find a and d or the relation between a and d using the given info.
9th term of the A P is zero.
so a =-8d...(i)
now 29th term is=a+28d=-8d+28d=20d...using (i)
19th term = a+18d=-8d+18d=10d
so we see that
29th term =2 x (19th term)
