T1= 4-3(1)=1

T2=4-3(2)= -2

T3=4-3(3)= -5

T4= 4-3(4)= -8

There is common difference , -2-1= -5-(-2)= -3

sum of arithmetic = n(2a+(n-1)d)/2

                  -125= 20(2(1)+(n-1)(-3))/2

                 -12.5 = 2-3n+3

                3n= 12.5+2+3

                  3n= 17.5

                      n= 8.83
