No, the sequence is not arithmetic.
If the sequence is arithmetic, find the common difference d. (If the sequence is not arithmetic, enter DNE.)
d=?

Here for each consecutive term of the sequence, a constant is added to get the next term.
Therefore given is an arithmetic sequence.
d = second term - first term
=22(38)
=22+38
=16
