How to solve a problem when attending online practice tests?
Find the next two terms in Arithmetic Progression: 3, 8, 13, -, -.
Step#1: First derive the data by understanding the question.
3, 8, 13, -, -.
Step#2: See the difference between the consecutive numbers.
3+x=8; x=8-3, x=5
8+x=13; x=13-8, x=5
The difference between the consecutive numbers is 5. Say, d=5
Step#3: Name the unknown terms.
Name the first term as ‘a’. Next 2 terms as u1 and u2.
You want the value of the 4th and 5th term.
Step#4: Practice, Practice, and Practice
The problem may look simple and seems easy to calculate orally. But, it is not so, when larger integers are substituted.
