# Arithmetic Sequence

posted by Nina

Given the third term of an arithmetic sequence less than the fourth term by three. The seventh term is two times the fifth term. Find the common difference and the first term.

1. Steve

since the terms have a constant difference, the difference is 3.

a+6*3 = 2(a+4*3)
a+18 = 2a+24
a = -6

sequence is -6,-3,0,3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24
T7 = 12 = 2*6 = 2T5
