72[2a+6(−20)]=700

72[2a−120]=700

2a−120=700×27

2a – 120 = 200

∴ 2a = 200 + 120

2a = 320

a=3202=Rs.160

∴ Each prizes are

Rs. 160, 140, 120, 100, 80, 60, 40

**10th Standard Maths Textbook Karnataka State Syllabus Question 17.**

In a school, students thought of planting trees in and around the school to reduce air pollution. It was decided that the number of trees, that each section of each class will plant. will be the same as the class. In which they are studying. e.g., a section of Class I will plant 1 tree. a section of Class Il will plant 2 trees and so on till Class XII. There are three sections of each class. How many trees will be planted by the students?

Solution:

a = 3. d = 6 – 3 = 3, n = 12, S_{12} =?

Sn=n2[2a+(n−1)d]

S12=122[2×3+(12−1)3]

= 6[6 + 11 × 3]

= 6[6 + 33]

= 6 × 39

∴ S_{12} = 234

∴ Total number of trees from 3 sections of each class upto 12 class is 234.

**Arithmetic Progression Class 10 Karnataka State Board Question 18.**

A spiral is made up of successive semicircles, with centres alternately at A and B, starting with centre at A, of radii 0.5 cm. 1.0 cm. 1.5 cm, 2.0 cm as shows In fig. What Is the total length of such a spiral made up of thirteen consecutive semicircles? (Take π=227)

[Hint: Length of successive semicircles is l_{1}, l_{2}, l_{3}, l_{4} with centres at A, B, A. B respectively.]

Solution :

:l1=π×12,12=π×1.13=π×32

l1=π2,l2=p,l3=32π

∴ Arithmetic Progression,

l_{1}, l_{2}, l_{3}, l_{4}, ………..

**KSEEB Solutions For Class 10 Maths Arithmetic Progression Exercise 1.3 Question 19.**

200 logs are stacked In the following manner. 20 logs in the bottom row, 19 in the next row, 18 in the row next to it and so on (see the fig. given below). In how many rows are the 200 logs placed and how many logs are In the top row?

Solution:

20, 19, 18, …..

a = 20, d = 19 – 20 = -1

S_{n} = 200, n =?, a_{n} =?

Sn=n2[2a+(n−1)d]

200=n2[2×20+(n−1)(−1)]

200=n2[40−n+1]

200=n2[41−n]

∴ 400 = n(41 – n)

400 = 4n – n^{2}

∴ n^{2} – 41n + 400 = 0

n^{2} – 25n – 16n + 400 = 0

n(n – 25) – 16(n – 25) = 0

(n – 25) (n – 16) =

1f n – 16 = 0 then, n = 16

∴ a_{n} = a + (n – 1) d

a_{16}= 20 + (16 – 1) (-1)

= 20 + 15(-1)

= 20 – 15

∴ a_{16} = 5

∴ 200 logs are placed In 16 rows and there are 5 logs in the top row.

**KSEEB Solutions For Class 10 Maths Question 20.**

In a potato race, a bucket is placed at the starting point, which Is 5 m from the first potato. and the other potatoes are placed 3 m apart in a straight line. There are ten potatoes in the line (see fig, given below)

A competitor starts from the bucket, picks up the nearest potato, runs back with it, drops ¡tin the bucket, runs back to pick up the next potato, runs to the bucket to drop It in, and she continues in the same way until al) the potaotes are in the bucket. What is the total distance the competitor has to run?

(Hint: To pick up the first potato and the second potato, the total distance (in metres) run by a competitor is 2 × 5 +2 × (5 + 3)]

Solution:

Total distance competitor taken to pick up the first potato = 5 + 5m

= 2 × 5m.

= 10m.

Total distance taken by compeUtor to pick up the second potato

= 5 + 3 + 3 + 5m.

= 2 × 5 + 2 × 3

= 2(5 + 3)

= 2 × 8

= 16m.

∴ 10m. 16m, 22m 10th potato

a = 10, d = 16 – 10 = 6m.

n = 10, S_{10 }=?

Sn=n2[2a+(n−1)d]

S10=102[2×10+(10−1)6]

= 5[20 + 9 × 6]

= 5 [20 + 54]

= 5 × 74

∴ S_{10} = 370m.

∴ Total distance the competitor has to run to pick up 10 potatoers is 370 m.
