2. Arithmetic SequencesA sequence a1, a2 , a3 , is an arithmetic sequenceif an = d*n + c, i.e. it is defined by a linear formula. 3. Arithmetic SequencesA sequence a1, a2 , a3 , is an arithmetic sequenceif an = d*n + c, i.e. it is defined by a linear formula.Example A. The sequence of odd numbersa1= 1, a2= 3, a3= 5, a4= 7, is an arithmetic sequence because an = 2n 1. 4.
