A9 = 0  Let A be the first term of this Ap and D be the common difference . Therefore A9 = A + (9-1)d (eq  1) = 0         Now A29 = A + 28D and A19 = A + 18D            Now 2 × A19 = 2A + 36 D = A + 28D + A + 8D and we know that A + 8D = 0 from eq 1. Therefore 2 × A19 = A + 28D = A29

Answer.

In A.P the first term� = a and common difference = d.

Given that� 9th term of an A.P. is 0.

Therefore t9 = 0

⇒ a + 8d = 0 ⇒ a = -8d� --------------(1)

We have to prove that t29 = 2 t19.

t19 = a + 18d = -8d + 18d = 10d������� [� from (1) ]

t29� = a + 28d = -8d + 28d = 20d������� [� from (1) ]

t29� = 2 x 10d = 2 x t19

∴ t29� = 2 x t19 .

We have to prove that t29 = 2 t19.

t19 = a + 18d = -8d + 18d = 10d        [  from (1) ]

t29  = a + 28d = -8d + 28d = 20d        [  from (1) ]

t29  = 2 x 10d = 2 x t19

∴ t29  = 2 x t19 .
