first term of this AP series is 1 , so a =1

now nth term(Tn) = a+(n-1)d                            (d is common ration of this series)

 4th term of AMs means 5th term of AP ...so T5 = a+4d = 1+ 4d

 7th term of AMs means 8th term of AP ...so T8 = a+7d = 1+7d

ratio is given = 3/5

 1+4d/1+7d = 3/5

5+20d = 3+21d

  d = 2

now ,let there are n terms  in this Ap then

 a + (n-1) = 51

 1 + (n-1)2 = 51        or

 n = 26

approve my ans if u like it

There are n+2 terms in the AP because we’re also including 1 and 51 so the last step is wrong.
It should be 
1 + (n+1)d = 51 
so n = 24
