# Arithmetic & Geometric Progression | Formulas & Questions – 10th March 2018 : RRB ALP/Group D

Dear students, you know that QUANT is a part of getting points and every chapter is important. Therefore, we are providing notes on basic concepts of Arithmetic And Geometric Progression with formulas and some questions which you can practice after reading out concepts and formula. Read all these formulas and solve all the question and practice well for your upcoming exams. These notes and questions are based on latest pattern of RRB ALP/Group D exam.

Arithmetic Progression :

Series of the form  a, a + d, a + 2d, a + 3d . . . . . . . . . . is called Arithmetic Progression, when they increase or decrease by a common difference
e.g.→ 5, 12, 19, 26, 33
Common difference, d = 12 – 5 = 7
19 – 12 = 7
26 – 19 = 7
a₁, a₂, a₃ . . . . . . . . . . ,Tn
d = common difference = 2nd term – Ist term = a₂ – a₁
Last Term = a+(n-1)d
a → 1st term
n → no. of terms
d → Common difference
Sum of n terms in A.P :
Sum of n terms = n/2 [2a+(n-1)d]

Or

Sum of n terms = n/2 [First term+last term]
Total no. of term = (Last term-First term)/(Common difference )+1

(a) 800
(b) 700
(c) 850
(d) 1035
Geometric Progression :
a, ar, ar², ar³ . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Common Ratio (r) = (Second term)/(First term)
Last term of GP =
Sum of n terms in G.P  =, where r > 1
Or
Sum Of n terms in G.P =, where r<1

Sum of an Infinite Geometric Progression, when r < 1

Q1. The 7th term of G.P is 8 times the 4th term. What will be the 1st term if its 5th term is 48?
