# The sixth term an

Let first term be a and common difference be d.
We know that, an = a + (n - 1)d
a6 = a + (6 - 1)d
19 = a + 5d …(i)
and a17 = a + (17 - 1)d
41 = a + 16d …(ii)

On solving eq. (i) and (ii), we get,
a = 9 and d = 2

a40 = a + (40 - 1)d
a40 = 9 + (40 - 1) × 2
a40 = 9 + 39× 2 = 9 + 78 = 87

Hence, 40th term is 87.
