The difference between sum of first 20 terms and sum of first 12 terms of an AP is 1420.if 7th term of the AP is 73,find it's 27 th term

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

Sum of 20 terms = S20 = (20/2)[ 2a+19d ] = 20a + 190d
Sum of 12 terms = S12 = (12/2)[ 2a+11d ] = 12a + 66d

S20 - S12 = 8a +124d = 1420   or  2a+31d = 355 .................(1)

7th term = t7 = a + 6d = 73 ..............................(2)

By solving eqns.(1) and (2), we get a = 7 and d = 11

27th term = t27 = 7 + (26×11) = 293
