## Quiz on Sequences and Series

Q1. Let x + y + z = 15 if 9, x, y, z, a are in A.P.; while [1 / x] + [1 / y] + [1 / z] = 5 / 3 if 9, x, y, z, a are in H.P., then what will be the value of a?
a) 1
b) 2
c) 4
d) 9

a) 1

Solution:

x + y + z = 15, if x = (z−3)−1 = z3 are in A.P.

Sum =9+15+a=52(9+a)

⇒ 24 + a = 5 / 2 (9 + a)

⇒ 48 + 2a = 45 + 5a

⇒ 3a = 3

⇒ a = 1 ..(i) and

[1 / x] + [1 / y] + [1 / z] = 5 / 3, if 9, x, y, z, a are in H.P.

Sum = 1 / 9 + 5 / 3 + 1 / a

= 5 / 2 [1 / 9 + 1 / a]

⇒ a = 1

Q2. If x, 1, z are in A.P. and x, 2, z are in G.P., then x, 4, z will be in __________.
a) G.P.
b) H.P.
c) Both
d) None

b) H.P.

Solution:

x, 1, z are in A.P., then

2 = x + z ……(i) and

4 = xz ……(ii)

Divide (ii) by (i), we get

[x z] / [x + z] = 4 / 2 or

2xz / [x + z] = 4

Hence, x, 4, z will be in H.P.

Q3. The interior angles of a polygon are in A.P. If the smallest angle be 120o and the common difference be 5o, then the number of sides is __________.
a) 9
b) 25
c) 16
d) 90

a) 9

Solution:

Let the number of sides of the polygon be n.

Then the sum of interior angles of the polygon = (2n − 4) [π / 2] = (n − 2)π

Since the angles are in A.P. and a = 120o, d = 5, therefore

[n / 2] * [2 * 120 + (n − 1)5] = (n − 2) * 180

n2 − 25n + 144 = 0

(n − 9) (n − 16) = 0

n = 9, 16

But n = 16 gives

T16 = a + 15d = 120o + 15.5= 195o, which is impossible as interior angle cannot be greater than 180o.

Hence, n = 9.

Q4. The sums of n terms of two arithmetic series are in the ratio [2n + 3] : [6n + 5], then the ratio of their 13th terms is _______.
a) 55 / 155
b) 27 / 112
c) 53 / 147
d) 57 / 143

a) 55 / 155

Solution:

We have Sn1 / Sn2 = [2n + 3] / [6n + 5]

{[n / 2] * [2a1 + (n − 1)d1]} / {[n / 2] * [2a2 + (n − 1)d2]}

= [2n + 3] / [6n + 5]

{2 * [a1 + ([n − 1] / 2)d1]} / {2 * [a2 + ([n − 1] / 2)d2]} = [2n + 3] / [6n + 5]

{a1 + ([n − 1] / 2)d1} / {a2+([n − 1] / 2)d2} = [2n + 3] / [6n + 5]

Put n = 25 then,

[a1 + 12d1] / [a2 + 12d2]= [2 (25) + 3] / [6 (25) + 3]

T131 / T13= 53 / 155

Q5. If the pth, qth and rth term of an arithmetic sequence are a, b and c respectively, then the value of [a (q − r) + b (r − p) + c (p − q)] = ________.
a) 0
b) 1
c) 2
d) 3

a) 0

Solution:

Suppose that the first term and the common difference of A.P.s are A and D respectively.

Now,

pth term = A + (p − 1)D = a …… (i)

qth term = A + (q − 1)D = b …… (ii) and

rth term = A + (r − 1)D = c .….. (iii)

So, [a (q − r) + b (r − p) + c (p − q)] = a * {[b − c] / [D]} + b * {[c − a] / [D]} + c * {[a − b] / [D]}

= [1 / D] (ab − ac + bc − ab + ca −bc)

= 0

Q6. If log2, log(2x − 5) and log(2x − [7 / 2]) are in A.P., then x is equal to ______.
a) 2
b) 3
c) 5
d) 7

b) 3

Solution:

log2, log(2x − 5) and log(2x − [7 / 2]) are in A.P.

⇒ 2 log(2x − 5) = log[(2) (2− 72)]

⇒ (2− 5)= 2x+1 − 7

⇒ [22x − 12] * [2x − 32] = 0

⇒ x = 2, 3

But x = 2 does not hold, hence x = 3.

Q7. If mth terms of the series 63 + 65 + 67 + 69 + . . . . . . . . . and 3 + 10 + 17 + 24 + . . . . . . be equal, then what is the value of m?
a) 17
b) 15
c) 13
d) 11

c) 13

Solution:

Given series 63 + 65 + 67 + 69 + . . . . . . . . . (i) and 3 + 10 + 17 + 24 + . . . . . . (ii)

Now from (i), mth term = (2m + 61) and mth term of (ii) series = (7m − 4)

Under condition, ⇒ 7m − 4 = 2m + 61

⇒ 5m = 65

⇒ m = 13

Q8. The sum of integers from 1 to 100 that are divisible by 2 or 5 is _________.
a) 3050
b) 3020
c) 3200
d) 3030

a) 3050

Solution:

The sum of integers from 1 to 100 that are divisible by 2 or 5

= sum of series divisible by 2 + sum of series divisible by 5 – sum of series divisible by 2 and 5.

= (2 + 4 + 6 + . . . . . . + 100) + (5 + 10 + 15 . . . . . . . + 100) − (10 + 20 + 30 + . . . . . . . . + 100)

= [50 / 2] {2 * 2 + (50 − 1) 2} + [20 / 2] {2 * 5 + (20 − 1)5} − [10 / 2] {10 * 2 + (10 − 1)10}

= 2550 + 1050 − 550

= 3050

Q9. In the expansion of loge {1 / [1 − x − x2 + x3]}, the coefficient of x is __________.
a) 2
b) 1
c) -2
d) -1

b) 1

Solution:

loge {1 / [1 − x − x2 + x3]} = loge {1 / [(1 − x) − x2 (1 − x)]}

= loge {1 / [(1 − x) (1 − x2)]}

= loge {[1 / (1 − x)(1 + x)]}

= loge {(1 − x)−2 (1 + x)−1} ……… (i)

= loge (1 − x)−2 + loge (1 + x)−1

= −2 loge (1 − x) − loge (1 + x)

= −2 [(−x) − (x2 / 2) − (x3 / 3) − (x4 / 4) − . . . . . . . ∞] − [x + (x2 / 2) + (x3 / 3) + (x4 / 4) − . . . . ∞],

Hence, coefficient of x = 2 − 1 = 1

Q10. The sum of the series [4 / 1!] + [11 / 2!] + [22 / 3!] + [37 / 4!] + [56 / 5!] + . . . is _____.
a) – 6e − 1
b) 6e − 6
c) 6e + 1
d) 6e − 1

d) 6e − 1

Solution:

S = 4 + 11 + 22 + 37 + . . . . + Tn−1 + Tn or

S = 4 + 11 + 22 + 37 + . . + Tn−1 + Tn

Therefore, on subtracting we get 0 = 4 + [7 + 11 + 15 + 19 + . . . . + (T− Tn−1)] − Tn

0 = 4 + [n − 1] /  * [14 + (n − 2)4] − Tn

So, T= 2n2 + n + 1

Thus, nth term of the given series is T= [2n2 + n + 1] / [(n)!]

= [2n] / [(n − 1)!] +  / [(n − 1)!] + / [n!]

= [2 (n − 1 + 1)] / [(n − 1)!] + 1 / [(n − 1)!] +  / [n!]

= 2 / [(n − 2)!] + 3 / [(n − 1)!] + 1 / n!

Sum = ∑n=1∞ T= 2e + 3e + e − 1

= 6e − 1
