**Christine**, Monday, January 30, 2012 at 1:19am5. The only sequences that are both

arithmetic and geometric are constant

sequences, in which all the terms must

be the same. For us to have a sum of 20,

each term of the sequence must be 5. We

can show this algebraically by solving

the system of equations a + d = ar and

a + 2d = ar² where a represents the first term of the sequence, d the common

difference of the arithmetic sequence,

and r the common ratio of the geometric sequence. This system produces the

solution d = 0 and r = 1.
