    Answer:

    The nth term of an AP will be 27 -7n.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    First five terms of the Arthemetic Sequence is given to us , which is 26 , 19 , 12 , 5

    Hence here Common Difference can be found by subtracting two consecutive terms . Here which is 19 – 26 = (7) .

    Here first term is 26 .

    And the nth term of an AP is given by ,

    T_n = a + ( n 1) d

    Substituting respective values ,

    ⇒ T_n = a + ( n – 1 )d

    ⇒ T_n = 26 + (n – 1)(-7)

    ⇒ T_n = 26 -7n+1

    ⇒ T_n = 27 – 7n

    Hence the nth term of an AP can be found using T_n = 27 7n.
