Step 1 We have to determine whether the given statement is true or false. As we know that in the arithmetic sequence, the difference between consecutive term is always same and in the geometric sequence, the ratio between the consecutive terms is always same. Step 2 So, the answer is YES. Arithmetic sequence is always about adding or subtracting the same constant term between the two terms and geometric sequence is always about multiplying or dividing by the same constant term. Hence, we can conclude that the given statement makes sense.
