# Write the Sequence With Nth Term: An = 3 + 4n - Mathematics

Write the sequence with nth term:

an = 3 + 4n

#### Solution

In the given problem, we are given the sequence with the nth term (a_n).

an = 3 + 4n

Now, to show that it is an A.P, we will first find its few terms by substituting n = 1, 2.3

So,

Substituting n = 1we get

a_1 = 3 + 4(1)

a_1 = 7

Substituting n = 2we get

a_2= 3 + 4(2)

a_2 = 11

Substituting n = 3we get

a_3 = 3 + 4(3)

a_3 = 15

Further, for the given sequence to be an A.P,

Common difference (d) = a_2 - a_1 = a_3 - a_2

Here

a_2 - a_1 = 11 - 7

= 4

Also

a_3 - a_2 = 15 - 11

= 4

Since a_2 - a_1 = a_3 - a_2`

Hence, the given sequence is an A.P
