## What is arithmetic progression? |

Arithmetic progression is one of the simpler types of series in mathematics. It is usually in the form of a, *a + d, a + 2d, a + 3d,* and so on, in which *a* is the first term and *d* is the constant difference between the two successive terms. A progression is also seen as these numbers are added, as in *a + (a + d) + (a + 2d) + (a +* 3d) *+,…, (a +* [n + 1]d). An example of an arithmetic progression would be 2 + 6 + 10 + 14 + …, in which *d* is equal to 4.
