Between 1 a

Answer :

Let A1, A2, … Am be m numbers such that 1, A1, A2, … Am, 31 is an A.P.


Here, First term = a = 1,


Last term = b = 31,


Total no. of terms = n = m + 2


31 = 1 + (m + 2 – 1) d


30 = (m + 1)d



A1 = a + d


A2 = a + 2d


A3 = a + 3d …


A7 = a + 7d

It is because here the 7th term is between 1 and 31. So counting from 1 the 7th term will be the 8th term.


Am-1 = a + (m – 1)d


Also given,







9 (m + 211) = 5 (31m – 29)


9m + 1899 = 155m - 145


155m – 9m = 1899 + 145


146m = 2044


m = 14
