S1/S4 = 1/10 a/4a+6d = 1/10 10a = 4a + 6d 10a - 4a = 6d 6a = 6d a = d S3 = 3(2a +2d)/2 S3 = 3(a + d) S1/S3 = a/3(a + d) = a/3(a + a) = a/6a = 1/6 S1 : S3 = 1 : 6

put Sn=n/2 then,S1=a S4=2 divide,equate to ratio crossmultiply and solve

Answer:- 1:3 Explanation : As S1=1 which means a=1. So we have the terms of A.P as 1, 1+d ,1+2d, 1+3d...... Now S4=10 which means 1+1+d+1+2d+1+3d =4+6d=10 and we get d=1. And A.P is 1,2,3,4..... Therefore ratio of first and third term is 1:3

It will be 1:7

1:6

Sn= n/2 S1= a Now, S4=4/2 S4= 4a+6d S1/ s4= 1/10 a/4a+6d= 1/10 a=d S3= 3/2 S3= 3/2, because a=d S3=6a Hence, S1/s3 = a/6a S1/s3 = 1/6

1/3

s1:s4=1:10. solving this we get a1 = d. similarly, a3 = 3d. then a1: a3= 1:3.

Evaluate the product without multiplying directly: 103 x 107?
103 x 107 = (100 + 3)(100 + 7) We know that (x + a)(x + b) = x^2 + (a + b)x + ab Therefore, 103 x 107 = 100^2 + (3 + 7) x 100 + 3 x 7 = 10000 + 1000 + 21 = 11021
