## Who invented arithmetic progression?

Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss

Answer– Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss is the father of Arithmetic Progression. He found it when he was in school and his teacher asked to sum the integers from 1 to 100.

**WHAT IS A in arithmetic progression?**

Important Notes on Arithmetic Progression An AP is a list of numbers in which each term is obtained by adding a fixed number to the preceding number. a is represented as the first term, d is a common difference, an as the nth term, and n as the number of terms. In general, AP can be represented as a, a+d, a+2d, a+3d,..

### What is arithmetic progression Class 10?

An arithmetic progression (AP) is a progression in which the difference between two consecutive terms is constant. Example: 2, 5, 8, 11, 14…. is an arithmetic progression.

**How do you solve AP?**

Arithmetic Progression (AP)

- nth term of an AP = a + (n-1) d.
- Arithmetic Mean = Sum of all terms in the AP / Number of terms in the AP.
- Sum of ‘n’ terms of an AP = 0.5 n (first term + last term) = 0.5 n [ 2a + (n-1) d ]

## Who is called Prince of mathematician?

Karl Friedrich Gauss

Born April 30th, 1777, in Brunswick (Germany), Karl Friedrich Gauss was perhaps one of the most influential mathematical minds in history. Sometimes called the “Prince of Mathematics”, he was noticed for his mathematical thinking at a very young age.

**Is 150 a term of the AP?**

The value of n obtained is a decimal number and not an integer showing that there can be no possible position for this nth term. Therefore, – 150 is not a term of the given AP and the correct option is A).

### What is the formula of AP and GP?

This is the AP sum formula to find the sum of n terms in series….List of Arithmetic Progression Formulas.

General Form of AP | a, a + d, a + 2d, a + 3d, . . . |
---|---|

The nth term of AP | an = a + (n – 1) × d |

Sum of n terms in AP | S = n/2[2a + (n − 1) × d] |

Sum of all terms in a finite AP with the last term as ‘l’ | n/2(a + l) |

**Who is the Prince of maths?**

Carl Friedrich Gauss

The Prince of Mathematics: Carl Friedrich Gauss | Mathematical Association of America.

## Is 302 a term?

Therefore 302 is not a term of the given sequence.
