Solution: Here, a = 3, d = 15 – 3 = 12

54th term can be given as follows:

a54 = a + 53d

= 3 + 53 x 12

= 3 + 636 = 639

So, the required term = 639 + 132 = 771

Or, 771 = a + (n – 1)d

Or, 771 = 3 + (n -1)12

Or, (n – 1)12 = 771 – 3 = 768

Or, n – 1 = 64

Or, n = 65

Thus, the required term is 65th term
