## Arithmetic Progression And Geometric Progression

An arithmetic progression is a sequence of numbers where the difference between the 2 successive numbers is constant in the series. Geometric Progression is a sequence of numbers where the terms are related to each other by a common ratio. Both AP & GP are important concepts of sequence and series and you must learn the important formula and examples. Questions from AP & GP are asked in various government job examinations including SSC and Railways.

## Arithmetic Progression

The first term of an AP is called as the initial term. The common difference, d between 2 terms of an AP can be found by subtracting the successive terms. The formula with examples of AP has been provided below.

## FAQs

### What are the differences between AP and GP?

The differences between every two consecutive terms are all the same in an arithmetic progression (AP), whereas the ratios of every two consecutive terms are all the same in a geometric progression (GP).

### What is relation between AP and GP?

The relation between AP, GP, and HP is, G P 2 = A P × H P. Q. Q.

### What is geometric progression with example?

If in a sequence of terms, each succeeding term is generated by multiplying each preceding term with a constant value, then the sequence is called a geometric progression. (GP), whereas the constant value is called the common ratio
