```Arithmetic and Geometric
Sequences
Sequences
Numbers can be written in a pattern, such as the
following: 3,9,27, 81….
Do you know the pattern?
Everything is being multiplied by 3.
A number pattern can be referred to as a
sequence.
There are two types of sequences: an arithmetic
sequence and a geometric sequence.
Number Patterns
The numbers in a sequence are called
terms of the sequence.
An arithmetic sequence is formed by
adding a fixed number to each previous
term. This number is called the common
difference.
What is an arithmetic
sequence?
A sequence in which
each term is found by
number to the previous
term.

What is the common
difference?
The difference between
each number. This
each previous number to
obtain the next number.

Arithmetic Sequences
Find the common difference of each
arithmetic sequence.
a. -7, -3, 1, 5
b. 17, 13, 9, 5
c. Common difference is 4.
d. Common difference is -4.
Special Note: If there is no common difference,
the sequence is not arithmetic.
Geometric Sequences
You form a geometric sequence by
multiplying a term in the
sequence by a fixed number to
find the next term. The fixed
number is the
common ratio.
What is a geometric
sequence?
A sequence in which
each term can be found
by multiplying the
previous term by the
same number.
