### SOLUTION

The given AP is 20,1914,1812,1734 ,..... and

Here,a=20andd=1914-20=774-20=77-804=-34

Let the nth term of the given AP be the first negative term. Then,

an < 0

⇒20+(n-1) ×(-34)<0 [an=a+(n-1)d]

⇒20+34-34n<0 ⇒834-34n<0 ⇒-34n<-834 ⇒n>833=2723 ∴ n= 28

Hence, the 28th term is the first negative term of the given AP.
