Arithmetic sequences

Arithmetic sequences

An arithmetic sequence (arithmetic progression) is a number sequence with a common difference between successive terms. By using the arithmetic sequence formula, we can easily find the value of a term and the common difference in the sequence.

Notes:
• arithmetic sequence: a sequence with a common difference between successive terms
• The nth term, tn{t_n} ,of an arithmetic sequence:
tn=t1+(n1)d{t_n} = {t_1} + \left( {n - 1} \right)d
where, tn{t_n}: nth term
t1{t_1}: first term
dd : common difference
