### 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.

### 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

### What is a infinite arithmetic sequence?

It is an arithmetic sequence for which the index goes on and on (and on).

### What is the difference between an arithmetic series and an arithmetic sequence?

An arithmetic sequence is a list of numbers which follow a rule. A series is the sum of a sequence of numbers.

### 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.

That's an arithmetic sequence.

### 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.

### Is The Fibonacci sequence arithmetic?

No, the Fibonacci sequence is not an arithmetic because the difference between consecutive terms is not constant

One of the simplest arithmetic arithmetic sequence is the counting numbers: 1, 2, 3, ... . The person who discovered that is prehistoric and, therefore, unknown.

### Rule to finding terms in a arithmetic sequence?

The nth term of an arithmetic sequence = a + [(n - 1) X d]

The sequence is arithmetic if the difference between every two consecutive terms is always the same.

### Is 8765 and 4 an arithmetic sequence?

In order to determine whether or not this is an arithmetic sequence, there must be at least 3 numbers.

### What is a non arithmetic sequence?

An arithmetic sequence in one in which consecutive terms differ by a fixed amount,or equivalently, the next term can found by adding a fixed amount to the previous term. Example of an arithmetic sequence: 2 7 12 17 22 ... Here the the fixed amount is 5. I suppose any other type of sequence could be called non arithmetic, but I have not heard that expression before. Another useful kind of sequence is called geometric… Read More

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

Arithmetic- the number increases by 10 every term.

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

The sequence 216 12 23 is neither arithmetic nor geometric.

### 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!

### 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.

### 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.

### 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.

### What does arithmetic sequence mean?

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

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

An arithmetic sequence

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

An arithmetic sequence.

### 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)

### 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.

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

It creates a decreasing sequence.

### 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.

### What word means found by adding the same number to the previous term?

There is no single word to describe what happens. A two-word phrase is "arithmetic sequence".

### 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

### Is constant sequence an AP?

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

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

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

### Is this sequence arithmetic 591317?

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

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

The one number, 491419 does not constitute a sequence!

The sequence is neither arithmetic nor geometric.

### Can a recursive formula produce an arithmetic or geometric sequence?

arithmetic sequence * * * * * A recursive formula can produce arithmetic, geometric or other sequences. For example, for n = 1, 2, 3, ...: u0 = 2, un = un-1 + 5 is an arithmetic sequence. u0 = 2, un = un-1 * 5 is a geometric sequence. u0 = 0, un = un-1 + n is the sequence of triangular numbers. u0 = 0, un = un-1 + n(n+1)/2 is the sequence… 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.

### 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.

### What are arithmetic series?

An arithmetic series is a fairly similar to an arithmetic sequence except for the fact that in a series you are adding the numbers in between, not putting commas. Example: Sequence 1,3,5,7,.........n Series 1+3+5+7+..........+n Hope this helped(:

### What is the uses of arithmetic progression?

When quantities in a given sequence increase or decrease by a common difference,it is called to be in arithmetic progression.
