If the sum of first n terms of an A.P. is cn2, then sum of squares of these n terms is?

Answers : (1)


If a is 1st term and d is common difference, sum of n terms = (n/2) (2a + (n-1)d) = (2an-nd) + n2d


comparing this with cn2 we get : 2an-nd = 0  and  d = c    =>    a = c/2,  d = c


sum of squares of n terms = \sum_{r=1}^{n}(a+(n-1)d)^{2}


=\sum_{r=1}^{n}\left( \frac{c}{2}+(n-1)c\right)^{2}


=\sum_{r=1}^{n}c^{2}\left( n^{2}-n+\frac{1}{4}\right)


=c^{2}\left( \sum_{r=1}^{n}n^{2}-\sum_{r=1}^{n}n+\sum_{r=1}^{n}\frac{1}{4}\right)

A certain polynomial P(x),x E R WHEN DIVIDED BY (x-a),(x-b) and (x-c) leaves remainder a,b,c.then find the remainder when P(x) is divided by (x-a)(x-b)(x-c) where a,b,c are distinct
it is clear that f(a) is the remainder when f(x) is divided by x-a and when f(x) is divided by q(x) the remainder will be having degree less than q(x) so when P(x) is divided by...

The polynomial P(x) - x has roots a,b, and c Hence P(x) - x = (x-a)(x-b)(x-c) Q(x) for some polynomial Q(x) or P(x) = Q(x) (x-a)(x-b)(x-c) + x It immediately follows that the remainder when...

(2x+3y) is divisible by 17,then for what value of k; (9x+ky) is divisible by 17. Please give the solution.
gcd(2x+ 3y, 9x + ky ) = 17 or gcd(2x + 3y, (9x + ky) - 4(2x + 3y)) = 17 or gcd(2x + 3y, (x + (k-12) y) = 17 gcd ( 2x+ 3y - 2(x + k- 12y), (x + (k-12) y)) = 17 so 27y -2k y is divisible by 17...

4(2x+3y)+(9x+5y) = 17(x+y). Since RHS is divisible by 17, and so is 4(2x+3y), we must have 9x+5y also divisible. Hence for any k such that k = 5+19m for any integer m, we have 9x+ky...

Is the function f (x) = |x^2 - x| differentiable at x = 2. If yes find it’s derivative.
Yes fuction will be differentiable at x =2. which can easily be seen by graph of the function. First draw the graph of y = x2-x and then take mode. Derivative will be = 2x-1 at x= 2...
