As we learnt in 

Sum of n terms of an AP -

S_{n}= \frac{n}{2}\left [ 2a +\left ( n-1 \right )d\right ]

 

and

Sum of n terms of an AP

 

S_{n}= \frac{n}{2}\left [ a+l\right ]

- wherein

a\rightarrow first term

d\rightarrow common difference

n\rightarrow number of terms

 

Given a1 ,a2 ,a3...are in A.P and \frac{a_{1}+a_{2}+a_{3}+......+a_{p}}{a_{1}+a_{2}+a_{3}+....+a_{q}}=\frac{p^{2}}{q^{2}}

\therefore \frac{\frac{p}{2}(2a_{1}+(p-1)d)}{\frac{q}{2}(2a_{1}+(q-1)d)}=\frac{p^{2}}{q^{2}}

Put p=2\times6-1=12-1=11

      q=2\times21-1=42-1=41

\frac{2a_{1}+10d}{2a_{1}+40d}=\frac{a_{1}+5d}{a_{1}+20d}

\frac{a_{6}}{a_{21}}=\frac{11}{41}
