## Let's go through each question and explain how to get the answers.

1) To find the 20th term of an arithmetic sequence, you can use the formula: an = a1 + (n-1)d, where a1 is the first term, d is the common difference, and n is the term number. In this case, a1 = 3, d = 7, and n = 20. Plugging these values into the formula, we get a20 = 3 + (20-1) * 7 = 3 + 19 * 7 = 3 + 133 = 136. Therefore, the correct answer is b.

2) To find the equation for the nth term of an arithmetic sequence, we need to observe the pattern. In this case, the common difference between consecutive terms is 6 (3 - (-3) = 6). The first term can be represented as a1 = -3. Knowing this, we can write the equation for the nth term as an = a1 + (n-1)d, where d is the common difference. Substituting the values, we get an = -3 + (n-1) * 6 = -3 + 6n - 6 = 6n - 9. Therefore, the correct answer is b.

3) To find two arithmetic means between two given terms, we need to find the difference between the terms and divide it by 3. In this case, the difference between 4 and 22 is 22 - 4 = 18. Dividing this by 3 gives us 6. The two means are obtained by adding 6 to the first term and adding 12 to the first term. Therefore, the two means are 10 and 16. The correct answer is a.

4) To find Sn, the sum of the first n terms of an arithmetic series, you can use the formula: Sn = (n/2) * (2a1 + (n-1)d), where a1 is the first term, d is the common difference, and n is the number of terms. In this case, a1 = 3, d = 1/2, and an = 15. We need to find n, the number of terms. Using the formula for the nth term, we can solve for n: 15 = 3 + (n-1) * (1/2) => 15 - 3 = (n-1)(1/2) => 12 = (n-1)/2 => 24 = n-1 => n = 25. Now we can calculate Sn: Sn = (25/2) * (2 * 3 + (25-1) * (1/2)) = 25 * (6 + 12) = 25 * 18 = 450. Therefore, the correct answer is b.

5) The expression 8 is on top of the sigma notation, and k=3 is at the bottom, while (40-3k) is on the right side. This represents a summation of the expression (40 - 3k) as k takes on values from 3 to 8. We can evaluate this by plugging in the values of k and summing up the results. We have: (40 - 3*3) + (40 - 3*4) + (40 - 3*5) + (40 - 3*6) + (40 - 3*7) + (40 - 3*8) = 31 + 28 + 25 + 22 + 19 + 16 = 141. Therefore, the correct answer is d.
