for the standard arithmetic sequence
$a,a+d,a+2d,a+3d+....+a+\left(n-1\right)d$
$\text{where}\phantom{\rule{1ex}{0ex}}a={a}_{1}\phantom{\rule{1ex}{0ex}}\text{the first term and d the common difference}$
to obtain a term from the previous one, add d to it
here d=−2
${a}_{1}=14$
${a}_{2}=14-2=12$
${a}_{3}=12-2=10$
${a}_{4}=10-2=8$
${a}_{5}=8-2=6$
