The sum of the first ten terms of a particular arithmetic sequence is four times the sum of the first five terms of the sequence. What is the ratio of the first term to the second term? Express your answer as a common fraction.

#1**+1 **

a1= the first term,

d= the common difference, and

a2= the second term.

The second term is equal to a2=a1+d

The sum of the first 5 terms is

5a1+10d .

The sum of the first 10 terms is

10a1+45d .

CAN YOU FIGURE IT OUT FROM HERE????

1/3

BTW THIS IS A HINT
