Q 1:-
Given a sequence kn=[(1+(-1)^n)+1]/5n+6..
find the no of terms of the sequence kn which will satisfy the condition kn lies between 1/100 and 39/100.

Q 2:-
Find the sum of all the irreducable fractions between 10 and 20 with a denominator of 3

Q 3:-
Find all pairs of natural no s whose greatest common divisor is 5 and L.C.M is 105

Well, what did you do? And why was this not posted under "homework help"?

See i don't know anything about forums..like where do we even get the section "homework help"..! anyways that's not the issue here.
For the first question i tried to make the denominator 100 for which i got n in fraction now that if i put in numerator then in all probability it becomes a question of complex numbers which i don't know.For the second i am getting the answer uncountable or infinity and i don't know third

There are none, as all the terms in the sequence are greater than 6.

I suppose you mean kn=[(1+(-1)n)+1]/(5n+6) .

The parentheses are important.

What you wrote literally means: $k_n=\frac{(1+(-1)^n)+1}{5n}+6\,,$ which is how uart likely interpreted it.

There are many numbers between 1/100 and 39/100 which don't have a denominator of 100.

How many terms of the sequence are between 0.01 and 0.39 ?

The terms of the sequence with n odd look much different from the terms with n even.

yeah but i was trying to first find that n for which i shall get the limiting values;i mean 0.01 and 0.39. And i did not understand what you said in the second part

If n is odd, (-1)n = -1 .

If n is even, (-1)n = 1 .

n is a positive integer.

It's a sequence we're talking about.
