A sequence is arithmetic if there is a constant difference between consecutive terms, called the common difference d. So, to find the next term, add the common difference to the previous term.
Given a1=5 and d=3, the first six terms are:
a1=5
a2=a1+3=5+3=8
a3=a2+3=8+3=11
a4=a3+3=11+3=14
a5=a4+3=14+3=17
a6=a5+3=17+3=20
Result:
5,8,11,14,17, and 20
