**Arithmetic Sequences and Series**

2
Arithmetic Sequences

3
An Arithmetic Sequence is defined as a sequence in which there is a common difference between consecutive terms.

4
**Which of the following sequences are arithmetic**

Which of the following sequences are arithmetic? Identify the common difference. YES YES NO NO YES

5
The common difference is always the difference between any term and the term that proceeds that term. Common Difference = 5

6
**The general form of an ARITHMETIC sequence.**

First Term: Second Term: Third Term: Fourth Term: Fifth Term: nth Term:

7
**Formula for the nth term of an ARITHMETIC sequence.**

If we know any three of these we ought to be able to find the fourth.

8
Given: Find: IDENTIFY SOLVE

9
**Find: What term number is -169?**

Given: Find: What term number is -169? IDENTIFY SOLVE

10
Given: Find: What’s the real question? The Difference IDENTIFY SOLVE

11
Given: Find: IDENTIFY SOLVE

12
Arithmetic Series

13
**Write the first three terms and the last two terms of the following arithmetic series.**

What is the sum of this series?

14
**What is the SUM of these terms?**

Written 1st to last. Written last to 1st. Add Down 50 Terms 71 + (-27) Each sum is the same.

15
In General . . .

16
**Find the sum of the terms of this arithmetic series.**

17
**Find the sum of the terms of this arithmetic series.**

What term is -5?

18
**Alternate formula for the sum of an Arithmetic Series.**

19
**Find the sum of this series**

It is not convenient to find the last term.
