## FAQs on RD Sharma Solutions for Class 10 Maths Chapter 9 - Arithmetic Progressions

**1. How many questions should be practised for Arithmetic Progression?**

Because the sequences can vary in terms of difficulty and complexity, it is advisable to practice as many questions as possible after the completion of the chapter in R. D. Sharma class 10 Maths. There are six exercises given from 9.1 to 9.6. The types of questions could be to either find the first or last term of the progression or the common difference within the sequence. In case a student faces some difficulty in understanding the concepts or is unable to comprehend the ways of solving a question, the student should first go through the examples mentioned after every module.

**2. Is Arithmetic Progression a difficult chapter?**

Maths is all about practice and keeping in mind the basics which are useful for solving complex questions. Arithmetic Progression could be tricky initially due to being analytically intensive. Once the student can crack the pattern of the sequence, placing it in the form of formula is all that needs to be done! There are many tips and tricks to find the arithmetic progression of a sequence and a student can do so through rigorous practice and also by solving sample papers created by the experts of Vedantu.

**3. How do we memorise the formula in Arithmetic Progression?**

The basic step to memorise a formula is by understanding its derivation. Maths can never be ‘learned’ or ‘memorised’ in the truest sense. A formula can be ‘memorised’ only after writing the formula again and again for long term retention. Use mnemonic devices or make one of your own through video tutorials or articles on how and where to use mnemonics. Keep practising questions related to the respective formula. Once the student gets a hang of the process, the formula will forever be etched in the memory.

**4. How many progressions can be derived through the formula of Arithmetic Progression?**

There are mainly two answers for such progressions- negative and positive. It is simply calculated by taking the difference of the second term and the first term in the arithmetic sequence or the difference between the third and second term or any other two consecutive terms in the sequence. An example of a negative progression could be 10, 7, 4, 1, -2…… Here the common difference is -3. The only thing that students need to keep in their mind is that the common difference changes with the change in sequence or series.

**5. How many questions are asked from Arithmetic Progression in the CBSE Class 10 Maths Board Exam?**

The marking scheme of questions on Arithmetic Progression depends on the complexity of the question. According to the Previous Years’ Question papers, at least 1 or two questions have always been mentioned in the paper. The marks range from one to four and hence this chapter cannot be skipped. Students who have strengthened their algebra skills can easily solve such questions through the correct usage of formulae. Hence students should be solving both the mock papers and the Previous Years’ question papers to understand the pattern which is available on Vedantu’s official website in PDF format for free.
