    common difference = A2-A1 = A3-A2 = 11

    A3-A2 = 11 2n - (n-1) =11 can you find 'n' from here ??

    The first term is decreased by 5 to make what... ? the second term? itself? It doesn't make a lot of sense.

    2n-n-1=11 n=12 substitute it gave me 7,11 and 24

    ok...i guess, 11 as common difference(d) should naot have been given. in that case d = A2 - A1 = 4 then A3-A2 = 4 and find 'n'.

    n=3 will give u a3 = 2n = 2*3 =6
