Arithmetic sequence is a adding or subtracting term to term to get to the next sequence for example 0 -5 -10 -15 each term 5 is being subtracted. Just like 0, 5, 10, 15 the 5 was being added is basically an order of numbers. Jessica kee

Jessica arithmetic sequence is correct because when you subtracting 5 your terms start to decrease and when you add 5 your terms increase. 0-5=-5 & 0+5=5, as you can see in Jessica examples in the subtracting ( 5 ) the numbers are becoming negative and in her adding example with ( 5 ) her numbers are increasing.

Chavon was correct because adding 3 to each term made the numbers equal to one another

Arithmetic sequence to me is basically numbers with a common difference between them for example 20, 35, 50, 65 all have the common difference of 15. Simply add 15 as the pattern continues.

@devartis Your definition of arithmetic sequence is right because you can add & subtract and you will still have a common different as well as multiplying or dividing.

Arithmetic sequences is numbers that have Pattern to them/between each number. For an example, when you count by 5 the number between them is 5..5,10,15,20,25
