1 Arithmetic Ad Geometric Progressios Sequeces Ad ARITHMETIC AND GEOMETRIC PROGRESSIONS Successio of umbers of which oe umber is desigated as the first, other as the secod, aother as the third ad so o gives rise to what is called a sequece. Sequeces have wide applicatios. I this lesso we shall discuss particular types of sequeces called arithmetic sequece, geometric sequece ad also fid arithmetic mea (A.M), geometric mea (G.M) betwee two give umbers. We will also establish the relatio betwee A.M ad G.M. Let us cosider the followig problems : (a) A ma places a pair of ewly bor rabbits ito a warre ad wats to kow how may rabbits he would have over a certai period of time. A pair of rabbits will start producig offsprigs two moths after they were bor ad every followig moth oe ew pair of rabbits will appear. At the begiig the ma will have i his warre oly oe pair of rabbits, durig the secod moth he will have the same pair of rabbits, durig the third moth the umber of pairs of rabbits i the warre will grow to two; durig the fourth moth there will be three pairs of rabbits i the warre. Thus, the umber of pairs of rabbits i the cosecutive moths are :,,,, 5, 8,,... (b) The recurrig decimal 0. ca be writte as a sum (c) A ma ears Rs.0 o the first day, Rs. 0 o the secod day, Rs. 50 o the third day ad so o. The day to day earig of the ma may be writte as 0, 0, 50, 70, 90, We may ask what his earigs will be o the 0 th day i a specific moth. Agai let us cosider the followig sequeces: MATHEMATICS 405

EXPECTED BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE Laws of idices Simultaeous equatios with two ukows. Quadratic Equatios. Sequeces Ad. SEQUENCE A sequece is a collectio of umbers specified i a defiite order by some assiged law, whereby a defiite umber a of the set ca be associated with the correspodig positive iteger. The differet otatios used for a sequece are.. a, a, a,..., a,.... a,,,,.... {a } Let us cosider the followig sequeces :.,, 4, 8, 6,,...., 4, 9, 6, 5,...., 4, 4, 5, 4.,,, 4, 5, 6, I the above examples, the expressio for th term of the sequeces are as give below : () a () a () a + for all positive iteger.

The first term has a importat role i this lesso. Also every followig term of the sequece has certai relatio with the first term. What is the relatio of the terms with the first term i Example ()? First term Secod term 4 + Third term 6 + Fourth term 8 + ad so o. The cosecutive terms i the above sequece are obtaied by addig to its precedig term. i.e., the differece betwee ay two cosecutive terms is the same. A fiite sequece of umbers with this property is called a arithmetic progressio. A sequece of umbers with fiite terms i which the differece betwee two cosecutive terms is the same o-zero umber is called the Arithmetic Progressio or simply A. P. The differece betwee two cosecutive terms is called the commo defferece of the A. P. ad is deoted by 'd'. I geeral, a A.
