# Can an arithmetic sequence be odd?

An arithmetic sequence can consist of only odd numbers but it cannot be an odd function since it need not be defined for negative values of the index.

### What is the formula to find sum of n odd numbers?

The set of odd numbers is an arithmetic sequence. Let say that the sequence has n odd numbers where the first term is a1 and the last one is n. The formula to find the sum on nth terms for an arithmetic sequence is: Sn = (n/2)(a1 + an) or Sn = (n/2)[2a1 + (n - 1)d] where d is the common difference that for odd numbers is 2. Sn = (n/2)(2a1 + 2n… Read More

### Is this an arithmetic sequence or a geometric sequence 13 23 33 43 53?

Arithmetic- the number increases by 10 every term. Read More

### Which explains why the sequence 216 12 23 is arithmetic or geometric?

The sequence 216 12 23 is neither arithmetic nor geometric. Read More

### What is a type of sequence when you add the same number over again?

arithmetic sequence. for example: 4,8,12,16 is an arithmetic sequence because it is 4+4+4+4. hope this helps! Read More

### What does arithmetic sequence mean?

Sequence that has addition or (subtractions*) subtraction will be +(-4) Read More

### What is a sequence in which you add the same number to the previous term?

An arithmetic sequence Read More

### What is A sequence of numbers such that the difference of any two successive members of the sequence is a constant?

An arithmetic sequence. Read More

### What is an arithmetic sequence?

An arithmetic sequence is a line-up of numbers in which the DIFFERENCE between any two next-door neighbors is always the same. Read More

### How are stairs an example of an arithmetic sequence?

Each stair is the same as the one next to it. An arithmetic sequence shows numbers with even spacing (such as 2,4,6 or 5,10,15) Read More

### Why is 11111 an arithmetic sequence?

A single number, such as 11111, cannot define an arithmetic sequence. On the other hand, it can be the first element of any kind of sequence. On the other hand, if the question was about ``1, 1, 1, 1, 1'' then that is an arithmetic sequence as there is a common difference of 0 between each term. Read More

### A sequence in which the terms change by the same amount each time?

### In an arithmetic sequence if the difference value is negative what is the effect?

It creates a decreasing sequence. Read More

### Does the terms of an arithmetic sequence have a common ratio?

No. An 'arithmetic' sequence is defined as one with a common difference. A sequence with a common ratio is a geometric one. Read More

### Is constant sequence an AP?

It is an arithmetic sequence (with constant difference 0), or a geometric sequence (with constant ratio 1). Read More

### What is the type of sequence where the terms in the sequence are found by adding the same number each time?

That's an arithmetic sequence. Read More

### What is the difference between an arithmetic sequence and a geometric sequence?

In an arithmetic sequence the same number (positive or negative) is added to each term to get to the next term. In a geometric sequence the same number (positive or negative) is multiplied into each term to get to the next term. A geometric sequence uses multiplicative and divisive formulas while an arithmetic uses additive and subtractive formulas. Read More

### What is the nth term of the arithmetic sequence 7101316?

One number, such as 7101316 does not define a sequence. Read More

### What is the 40th term in arithmetic sequence 491419?

The one number, 491419 does not constitute a sequence! Read More

### Is this sequence arithmetic 591317?

One number, such as 591317 cannot comprise a meaningful sequence. Read More

### What is a good example of an arithmetic sequence?

An excellent example of an arithmetic sequence would be: 1, 5, 9, 13, 17, in which the numbers are going up by four, thus having a common difference of four. This fulfills the requirements of an arithmetic sequence - it must have a common difference between all numbers. Read More

### What is the difference between a geometric sequence and arithmetic sequence?

Goemetric sequence : A sequence is a goemetric sequence if an/an-1is the same non-zero number for all natural numbers greater than 1. Arithmetic sequence : A sequence {an} is an arithmetic sequence if an-an-1 is the same number for all natural numbers greater than 1. Read More

### How do arithmetic and geometric sequences compare to continuous functions?

an arithmetic sequeunce does not have the sum to infinty, and a geometric sequence has. Read More

### What describes the sequence 1 1 2 3 5 is it arithmetic or geometric?

It is an arithmetic sequence. To differentiate arithmetic from geometric sequences, take any three numbers within the sequence. If the middle number is the average of the two on either side then it is an arithmetic sequence. If the middle number squared is the product of the two on either side then it is a geometric sequence. The sequence 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 and so on is the Fibonacci series, which is… Read More

### How is a arithmetic sequence found?

You take the difference between the second and first numbers.Then take the difference between the third and second numbers. If that difference is not the same then it is not an arithmetic sequence, otherwise it could be.Take the difference between the fourth and third second numbers. If that difference is not the same then it is not an arithmetic sequence, otherwise it could be.Keep checking until you think the differences are all the same.That being… Read More

### Is the following sequence arithmetic or geometric and what is the common difference (d) or the common ration (r) the common ratio (r) of the sequence π2π3π22π?

The sequence is neither arithmetic nor geometric. Read More

### What is the d value of the following arithmetic sequence 16 9 2 5 12 19?

The sequence in the question is NOT an arithmetic sequence. In an arithmetic sequence the difference between each term and its predecessor (the term immediately before) is a constant - including the sign. It is not enough for the difference between two successive terms (in any order) to remain constant. In the above sequence, the difference is -7 for the first two intervals and then changes to +7.
