now,

a+9d = 41 ------- (i)

a+17d = 73 ------(ii)

on subtracting both equation we get,

a+9d - (a+17d) = 41 - 73

a+9d-a-17d = -32

-8d = -32

putting value of 'd' in (i) we get ,

a + 9*4 = 41

a + 36 = 41

a = 41-36

therefore, 45th term is

a+44d = 5 + 44*4 =

d=T10-T18/10-18

d= 41-73/10-18

d= -32/-8= 4

therefore T10=a+9d

41=a+9.4

a=5

T45= a+44d

5+44.4=5+176=181( substitute the a and d values)

Therefore 181 is the 45th term.
