Write first four terms of the AP, when the first term $a$ and the common difference $d$ are given as follows:
$a = 4, d = -3$

AcademicMathematicsNCERTClass 10

Given:

$a = 4, d = -3$

To do:

We have to write the first four terms of the arithmetic progression formed. 

Solution:

First term $a_1=a=4$

Second term $a_2=a_1+d=4+(-3)=4-3=1$

Third term $a_3=a_2+d=1+(-3)=1-3=-2$

Fourth term $a_4=a_3+d=-2+(-3)=-2-3=-5$

Therefore, the first four terms of the AP are $4, 1, -2, -5$.
