1, 8, 15, 22, ......., 2003 is an AP with a= 1 and d= 7

large a_n= a+(n-1)d

a+(n-1)d = 2003

1+(n-1) 7 = 2003

1+7n-7 = 2003

7n-6 = 2003

7n= 2009

n= 287

6th term from end = n-6+1 = 287 -6+1= 282

large a_{282}= 1+(282-1)7= 1+ 281 X 7= 1968

STUDENT FEEDBACK - Shivam Rana C/o ABHYAS Academy
 7th
My experience with Abhyas is very good. I have learnt many things here like vedic maths and reasoning also. Teachers here first take our doubts and then there are assignments to verify our weak points.
