Arithmetic progression Calculator
Calculate the arithmetic progression for entered values.
Arithmetic progression sequence is a sequence of numbers such that the difference of any two successive members of the sequence is a constant.
Arithmetic progression is a sequence, such as the positive even integers 2, 4, 6, 8,10, 12, . . . in which each term after the first is formed by adding a constant (common difference) to the preceding term.
each member of progression can be expressed as
An = a1 + d(n - 1)
The sum of the first n terms Sn of arithmetic sequence can be expressed as
Sn = n(a1 + an )/2
Applications of arithmetic progression
Used in straight line depreciation.
Used in prediction of any sequence.
Difference between arithmetic progression and arithmetic sequence
Arithmetic Progression is the series of a specified range that has a common difference which is consistent getting by subtraction of two elements in the series. Where as Arithmetic Sequence is the sum that is obtained by the elements of a series of Arithmetic Progression.
