```							 let the total no.of terms be 2n , & first term ,a & common diff. be d  a + (2n-1 ) d = l   & l-a = 10.5 if we take only the odd terms , it will also be a A.p. of n terms  with common diff. of 2d 24 = n/2 { 2a  + (n-1)2d  } 24 = n { a + (n-1 )d }     .................................(2) similarly, 30 = n/2 { 2(a+d) + (n-1)2d  } 30  = n/2 { 2a  + 2nd } 30 = n { a + nd }                   ...............................(3)   putting the value of   n { a + nd }  from eq 3  , in eq 2, 24 = 30 - nd nd = 6 , putting in eq 1 12 - d = 10.5 d = 1.5 , so   n = 6/ 1.5 = 4 putting in eq  3, 30 = 4 ( a + 6 )  a = 1.5   so the no. of terms  = 2n = 8  & series ,   1.5 ,  3, 4.5 , 6, 7.5, 9, 10.5 . 12
