Re: Arithmetic Series  Finding Terms when given two sumsHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20130613 13:51:07
Re: Arithmetic Series  Finding Terms when given two sumsI solved 2 equations simultaneously: This is the formula for an artihmetic sum. we have this means we have 2 n's for equation1. With 2 n's we can get a1 ( the first term ) and d ( the distance between each term ). We have the 2 n's they are n =10 and n = 20. Substituting into 1: Clean em up: Solving: a1 = 3 d = 4 Can you finish up now? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
