Arithmetic Sequeces ad Partial Sums Arithmetic Sequeces ad Partial Sums What you should lear Recogize,write, ad fid the th terms of arithmetic sequeces. Fid th partial sums of arithmetic sequeces. Use arithmetic sequeces to model ad solve real-life problems. Why you should lear it Arithmetic sequeces have practical real-life applicatios. For istace, i Exercise 83 o page 660, a arithmetic sequece is used to model the seatig capacity of a auditorium. Arithmetic Sequeces A sequece whose cosecutive terms have a commo differece is called a arithmetic sequece. Defiitio of Arithmetic Sequece A sequece is arithmetic if the differeces betwee cosecutive terms are the same. So, the sequece a 1, a, a 3, a 4,...,,... is arithmetic if there is umber d such that a a 1 a 3 a a 4 a 3... d. The umber d is the commo differece of the arithmetic sequece. Example 1 Examples of Arithmetic Sequeces a. The sequece whose th term is 4 3 is arithmetic. For this sequece, the commo differece betwee cosecutive terms is 4. 7, 11, 15, 19,..., 4 3,... Begi with mediacolor s Alamy b. The sequece whose th term is 7 5 is arithmetic. For this sequece, the commo differece betwee cosecutive terms is 5., 3, 8, 13,..., 7 5,... Begi with c. The sequece whose th term is 4 3 is arithmetic. For this sequece, the commo differece betwee cosecutive terms is 1, 5 4, 3, 7 4,..., 3 4, Begi with Now try Exercise 1. The sequece 1, 4, 9, 16,..., whose th term is, is ot arithmetic. The differece betwee the first two terms is a a but the differece betwee the secod ad third terms is a 3 a

2 3330_090.qxd 1/5/05 11:9 AM Page Chapter 9 Sequeces, Series, ad Probability I Example 1, otice that each of the arithmetic sequeces has a th term that is of the form d c, where the commo differece of the sequece is d. A arithmetic sequece may be thought of as a liear fuctio whose domai is the set of atural umbers. = d + c c a 1 a a 3 FIGURE 9.3 The th Term of a Arithmetic Sequece The th term of a arithmetic sequece has the form d c Liear form where d is the commo differece betwee cosecutive terms of the sequece ad c a 1 d. A graphical represetatio of this defiitio is show i Figure 9.3. Substitutig a 1 d for c i d c yields a alterative recursio form for the th term of a arithmetic sequece. a 1 1 d Alterative form Example Fidig the th Term of a Arithmetic Sequece The alterative recursio form of the th term of a arithmetic sequece ca be derived from the patter below. a 1 a 1 a a 1 d a 3 a 1 d a 4 a 1 3d a 5 a 1 4d 1 less a 1 1 d 1 less 1st term d term 3rd term 4th term 5th term th term As a aid to learig the formula for the th term of a arithmetic sequece, cosider havig your studets ituitively fid the th term of each of the followig sequeces. 1. 5, 8, 11, 14, 17,... Aswer: 3. a, a, a 4, a 6,... Aswer: a Fid a formula for the th term of the arithmetic sequece whose commo differece is 3 ad whose first term is. Solutio Because the sequece is arithmetic, you kow that the formula for the th term is of the form d c. Moreover, because the commo differece is d 3, the formula must have the form 3 c. Because a 1, it follows that c a 1 d So, the formula for the th term is 3 1. Substitute 3 for d. Substitute for The sequece therefore has the followig form., 5, 8, 11, 14,..., 3 1,... Now try Exercise 1. ad 3 for d. Aother way to fid a formula for the th term of the sequece i Example is to begi by writig the terms of the sequece. a a 3 5 a From these terms, you ca reaso that the th term is of the form d c 3 1. a a 1 a a a

3 3330_090.qxd 1/5/05 11:9 AM Page 655 Sectio 9. Arithmetic Sequeces ad Partial Sums 655 Example 3 Writig the Terms of a Arithmetic Sequece You ca fid a 1 i Example 3 by usig the alterative recursio form of the th term of a arithmetic sequece, as follows. a 1 1d a 4 a 1 4 1d 0 a a a 1 The fourth term of a arithmetic sequece is 0, ad the 13th term is 65. Write the first 11 terms of this sequece. Solutio You kow that a 4 0 ad a So, you must add the commo differece d ie times to the fourth term to obtai the 13th term. Therefore, the fourth ad 13th terms of the sequece are related by a 13 a 4 9d. ad are ie terms apart. Usig a 4 0 ad a 13 65, you ca coclude that d 5, which implies that the sequece is as follows. a 1 5 a 10 a 3 15 a 4 0 a 4 a 5 5 a 13 a 6 30 Now try Exercise 37. a 7 35 a 8 40 a 9 45 a a If you kow the th term of a arithmetic sequece ad you kow the commo differece of the sequece, you ca fid the 1th term by usig the recursio formula 1 d. Recursio formula With this formula, you ca fid ay term of a arithmetic sequece, provided that you kow the precedig term. For istace, if you kow the first term, you ca fid the secod term. The, kowig the secod term, you ca fid the third term, ad so o. Example 4 Usig a Recursio Formula Fid the ith term of the arithmetic sequece that begis with ad 9. Solutio For this sequece, the commo differece is d 9 7. There are two ways to fid the ith term. Oe way is simply to write out the first ie terms (by repeatedly addig 7)., 9, 16, 3, 30, 37, 44, 51, 58 Aother way to fid the ith term is to first fid a formula for the th term. Because the first term is, it follows that c a 1 d 7 5. Therefore, a formula for the th term is 7 5 which implies that the ith term is a Now try Exercise 45.

4 3330_090.qxd 1/5/05 11:9 AM Page Chapter 9 Sequeces, Series, ad Probability The Sum of a Fiite Arithmetic Sequece There is a simple formula for the sum of a fiite arithmetic sequece. Note that this formula works oly for arithmetic sequeces. The Sum of a Fiite Arithmetic Sequece The sum of a fiite arithmetic sequece with terms is S a 1. For a proof of the sum of a fiite arithmetic sequece, see Proofs i Mathematics o page 73. Example 5 Fidig the Sum of a Fiite Arithmetic Sequece Fid the sum: Solutio To begi, otice that the sequece is arithmetic (with a commo differece of ). Moreover, the sequece has 10 terms. So, the sum of the sequece is S a 1 Formula for the sum of a arithmetic sequece Substitute 10 for, 1 for a 1, ad 19 for. 50. Now try Exercise 63. Historical Note A teacher of Carl Friedrich Gauss ( ) asked him to add all the itegers from 1 to. Whe Gauss retured with the correct aswer after oly a few momets, the teacher could oly look at him i astouded silece. This is what Gauss did: S S S S The Grager Collectio Fidig the Sum of a Fiite Arithmetic Sequece Fid the sum of the itegers (a) from 1 to ad (b) from 1 to N. Solutio a. The itegers from 1 to form a arithmetic sequece that has terms. So, you ca use the formula for the sum of a arithmetic sequece, as follows. b. Example 6 S a a 1 N 1 N Formula for sum of a arithmetic sequece Substitute for, 1 for a 1, for. S N Now try Exercise 65. Formula for sum of a arithmetic sequece Substitute N for, 1 for a 1, ad N for.

5 3330_090.qxd 1/5/05 11:9 AM Page 657 Sectio 9. Arithmetic Sequeces ad Partial Sums 657 The sum of the first terms of a ifiite sequece is the th partial sum. The th partial sum ca be foud by usig the formula for the sum of a fiite arithmetic sequece. Example 7 Fidig a Partial Sum of a Arithmetic Sequece Fid the 150th partial sum of the arithmetic sequece 5, 16, 7, 38, 49,.... Solutio For this arithmetic sequece, a 1 5 ad d So, c a 1 d ad the th term is Therefore, a , ad the sum of the first 150 terms is S 150 a 1 a 150 th partial sum formula ,675. Applicatios Now try Exercise 69. Substitute 150 for, 5 for a 1, ad 1644 for th partial sum a 150. Example 8 Prize Moey I a golf touramet, the 16 golfers with the lowest scores wi cash prizes. First place receives a cash prize of $0, secod place receives $950, third place receives $900, ad so o. What is the total amout of prize moey? Solutio The cash prizes awarded form a arithmetic sequece i which the commo differece is d 50. Because c a 1 d you ca determie that the formula for the th term of the sequece is So, the 16th term of the sequece is a , ad the total amout of prize moey is S S 16 a 1 a 16 th partial sum formula Substitute 16 for, 0 for a 1, ad 50 for a $10,000. Now try Exercise 89.

The ower of the busiess has set a goal of icreasig aual sales by $7500 each year for 9 years. Assumig that this goal is met, fid the total sales durig the first 10 years this busiess is i operatio. Solutio The aual sales form a arithmetic sequece i which a 1 10,000 d So, c a 1 d 10, ad the th term of the sequece is This implies that the 10th term of the sequece is a ,500. See Figure 9.4. The sum of the first 10 terms of the sequece is S 10 a 1 a 10 th partial sum formula 10 10,000 77,500 Substitute 10 for, 10,000 for a 1, ad 77,500 for a , ,500.
