1. If the sum of terms of an A.P. is equal to the sum of terms, then show that the sum of its +
terms is zero.
Solution: Let be the first term and be the common difference of the given A.P.
We know that, =

2 + 1

But, = -------------------[given]

2 + 1 = 2 + 1

2 + 1 = 2 + 1
2 + = 2 +
2 + 2 = 2 + 2
