# Find the sum of first 51 terms of an AP whose second and third terms are 14 and 18 respectively.

To Find: S51

Given: a2 = 14, a3 = 18

We have; a2 = 14, a3 = 18 and n = 51

We know,

d = a3 – a2 = 18 – 14 = 4

Therefore, d = 4

a2 – a = 4

14 – a = 4

a = 10

So, first term = 10

Now, sum can be calculated as follows: Where, a and d are first term and common difference respectively. = 51 x (20 + 200)/2

= 51 x 110

= 5610

S51 = 5610
