Answer:

# a_n= a_1+(n-1)d , a_22=214#

Explanation:

For arithmatic progression series ,

#n# th term is # a_n= a_1+(n-1)d #, where #a_1.n,d# are

first term , number of terms and common difference respectively.

#a_6=-10 , d=14 , n=6 , a_1= ? :. -10 = a_1+(6-1)*14 #

or # a_1= -10-70= -80 ; a_22=? #

# a_22= a_1+(n-1)d or a_22= -80 +(22-1)*14 # or

#a_22= -80 +294 =214# [Ans]
