- 1. Arithmetic Sequences & Series T- 1-855-694-8886 Email- info@iTutor.com By iTutor.com
- 2. An infinite sequence is a function whose domain is the set of positive integers. a1, a2, a3, a4, . . . , an, . . . The first three terms of the sequence an = 4n – 7 are a1 = 4(1) – 7 = – 3 a2 = 4(2) – 7 = 1 a3 = 4(3) – 7 = 5. finite sequence terms © iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved
- 3. A sequence is arithmetic if the differences between consecutive terms are the same. 4, 9, 14, 19, 24, . . . 9 – 4 = 5 14 – 9 = 5 19 – 14 = 5 24 – 19 = 5 arithmetic sequence The common difference, d, is 5. © iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved
- 4. Example: Find the first five terms of the sequence and determine if it is arithmetic. an = 1 + (n – 1)4 This is an arithmetic sequence. d = 4 a1 = 1 + (1 – 1)4 = 1 + 0 = 1 a2 = 1 + (2 – 1)4 = 1 + 4 = 5 a3 = 1 + (3 – 1)4 = 1 + 8 = 9 a4 = 1 + (4 – 1)4 = 1 + 12 = 13 a5 = 1 + (5 – 1)4 = 1 + 16 = 17 © iTutor. 2000-2013.

- 5. The nth term of an arithmetic sequence has the form an = dn + c where d is the common difference and c = a1 – d. 2, 8, 14, 20, 26, . . . . d = 8 – 2 = 6 a1 = 2 c = 2 – 6 = – 4 The nth term is 6n – 4. © iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved
- 6. a1 – d = Example: Find the formula for the nth term of an arithmetic sequence whose common difference is 4 and whose first term is 15. Find the first five terms of the sequence. an = dn + c = 4n + 11 15, d = 4 a1 = 15 19, 23, 27, 31. The first five terms are 15 – 4 = 11 © iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved
- 7. The sum of a finite arithmetic sequence with n terms is given by 1( ). 2n n nS a a 5 + 10 + 15 + 20 + 25 + 30 + 35 + 40 + 45 + 50 = ? ( )501 2755 )0 5(55 2nS n = 10 a1 = 5 a10 = 50 © iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved
- 8. The sum of the first n terms of an infinite sequence is called the nth partial sum. 1( ) 2n n nS a a ( )190 25(184) 460 2 50 6 0nS a1 = – 6 an = dn + c = 4n – 10 Example: Find the 50th partial sum of the arithmetic sequence – 6, – 2, 2, 6, . . . d = 4 c = a1 – d = – 10 a50 = 4(50) – 10 = 190 © iTutor. 2000-2013.

- 11. Consider the infinite sequence a1, a2, a3, . . ., ai, . . .. 1. The sum of the first n terms of the sequence is called a finite series or the partial sum of the sequence. 1 n i i aa1 + a2 + a3 + . . . + an 2. The sum of all the terms of the infinite sequence is called an infinite series. 1 i i aa1 + a2 + a3 + . . . + ai + . . . © iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved
