149

Step-by-step explanation:

nth term = a+(n-1)d

6th term = a+(6-1)d=29

a+(6-1)d=29

a+5d=29 __________eq1

14th term = a+(14-1)d=69

a+(14-1)d=69

a+13d=69__________eq2

eq2-eq1

a+13d-(a+5d)=69-29

a+13d-a-5d=40

8d=40

d=8

putting d=8 in eq1

a+5(8)=29

a+40=29

a=29-40

a= -11

21th term = a+(21-1)d

=-11+(20)8

= -11+160
