$$\huge{\pink{\boxed{\green{\sf{A.P=3,4,5,6,7........}}}}}$$

Step-by-step explanation:

$$\huge{\pink{\boxed{\green{\underline{\red{\sf{SOLUTION-}}}}}}}$$

$$\: {\orange{given}} \\ { \pink{ \boxed{ \green{a3 = 5}}}} \\ { \pink{ \boxed{ \green{a7 = 9}}}} \\ \\ { \blue{to \: find}}\\ { \purple{ \boxed{ \red{ap = }}}}$$

According to given question:

$$\to a3 = 5 \\ \to a + 2d = 5 - - - - - (1) \\ \to a7 = 9 \\ \to a + 6d = 9 - - - - - (2)\\ \\ subtracting \: (1) \: from \: (2) \\ \to a + 6d - (a + 2d) = 9 - 5 \\ \to a + 6d - a - 2d = 4 \\ \to 4d = 4 \\ \to d = 1 \\ \\ putting \: value \: of \: d \: in(1) \\ \to a + 2d = 5 \\ \to a + 2 \times 1 = 5 \\ \to \: a = 5 - 2 \\ \to a = 3 \\ \\ \to hence \: the \: required \\{ \pink{ \boxed{ \green{ \therefore A.P = 3,4,5,6,7.......}}}}$$
