I need a few examples of Arithmetic sequences in our daily lives. I also need the general formula of an arithmetic sequence. Can anybody help?

what does commen diffrence mean

• math -

common difference= same difference.for example if someone tells you to find the difference of 3 and 2,
3-2=1. The difference=1.

Anyway, Thanks Ms.Sue!
