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${a}_{1}=5$ and d=3, the first six terms are:

${a}_{1}=5$

${a}_{2}={a}_{1}+3=5+3=8$

${a}_{3}={a}_{2}+3=8+3=11$

${a}_{4}={a}_{3}+3=11+3=14$

${a}_{5}={a}_{4}+3=14+3=17$

${a}_{6}={a}_{5}+3=17+3=20$

Result:

5,8,11,14,17, and 20

Given

Result:

5,8,11,14,17, and 20
