##### Solution :-

Let’s assume A1, A2, A3, A4, and A5 to be five numbers between 8 and 26 such that 8, A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, 26 are in an A.P.

Here we have,

a = 8, b = 26, n = 7

So,

26 = 8 + (7 – 1) d

6d = 26 – 8 = 18

d = 3

Now,

A1 = a + d = 8 + 3 = 11

A2 = a + 2d = 8 + 2 × 3 = 8 + 6 = 14

A3 = a + 3d = 8 + 3 × 3 = 8 + 9 = 17

A4 = a + 4d = 8 + 4 × 3 = 8 + 12 = 20

A5 = a + 5d = 8 + 5 × 3 = 8 + 15 = 23

Therefore, the required five numbers between 8 and 26 are 11, 14, 17, 20, and 23.
