A sequence is called an arithmetic progression (A.P) if the difference of a term and the previous term as always same i.e. d=tn+1 - tn =Constant for all n € N. the constant difference generally denoted by d is called the common difference.

nth term of A.P

Let A.P be a, a+d,a+2d,a+3d,………….

Then First term (a1) =a+0.d

Second term (a2) = a+1.d

Third term (a3) = a+2.d

nth term (an) = a+ (n-1)d

an = a+(n-1) d is called the nth term.


Let A.P be a, a+d,a+2d,a+3d,………………….a+(n-1)d then

S(n) = (n/2)*[2a+ (n-1)d]

S(n)= (n/2) (a + l) where l is the last term.


Arithmetic Mean A= (a+b)/2
