Answer :

First five multiples of 3 are

3, 6, 9, 12, 15

First term a = 3

Second term t_{1} = 6

Third term t_{2} = 9

Common difference d = t_{2} – t_{1} = 9 – 6 = 3

Thus, By using sum of n^{th} term of an A.P. we will find it’s sum

Where, n = no. of terms

a = first term

d = common difference

S_{n} = sum of n terms

We need to find S_{5}

Thus, correct answer is (A)
