if the pth term of an A.P. is 1/q and the qth term is 1/p,show that the sum of pq terms is 1/2(pq+1).

Dear Student!

Let *a* and *d* be the first term and common difference of A.P. respectively.

Solving (1) and 2, we get

Sum* *of *pq *terms of the A.P. = S_{pq }

Thus, the sum of *pq *terms of the given A.P. is .

Cheers!
