### Arithmetic Progression

Arithmetic Progression is an ordered sequence of real numbers or terms where the difference between
a term and its antecedent called common difference is same .

Example:

2, 4, 6,8,10. This sequence of numbers is an Arithmetic Progression because difference 4 minus the term 2 or, 8-6, 10-8, is always a constant, equal to 2.

The sequence 2, 5,6,10 is not an Arithmetic Progression, because difference from any term by its antecedent is not equal.

When the series starts by a smaller to the greater term, the progression shows a growing sequence, and the common difference is always a positive number.
Otherwise the progression shows a descending sequence, and the common difference is a negative number.

Use the point as decimal separator. Ex. For the number 8,182.46 enter 8182.46; The results are automatically displayed after you click on **"Calculate."**

**Note:** The accuracy of the calculator and its applicability to
particular cases is not guaranteed. The assistance, customized by qualified professional is recommended.
