Mean of the AP = (9+4)/2 = 6.5
Sum of first and last term = 13

Case 1
First term : 1 ; Last Term 12 ; Common Diff = 1
This isn't possible because 3rd term will be 3 whereas question says it's 4.

Case 2
First term : 2 ; Last Term 11; CD = 1
This is possible
No of terms = 10 = n
Last term = 11
11 + 20 + 2 = 33
