    Answer:

    22

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given that,

    Common difference, d = 4

    3rd term, a_3=10

    nth term of an AP is given by : a_n=a+(n-1)d, a is first term

    For 3rd term,

    10=a+(3-1)4\\\\10=a+8\\\\a=2

    Now 6th term is given by :

    a_6=2+(6-1)4\\\\a_6=22

    Hence, the 6th term is 22.
