The sum of first n terms of a certain series is given as 2n2-3n . Show that the series is an A.P.
Solution :
Given that :
tn  = 2n2 - 3n
 tn  = 2n2 - 3n n = 1 t1  = 2(1)2 - 3(1)   =   2 - 3    t1   =  -1 =  a n = 2 t2  = 2(2)2 - 3(2)   =   8 - 6    t2   =  2 d  = 2 - (-1)  = 3
Sn  = (n/2) [2a + (n - 1)d]
Sn  = (n/2) [2(-1) + (n - 1)3]
=  (n/2) [-2 + 3n - 3]
=  (n/2) [3n - 5]
