Program for N-th term of Arithmetic Progression series

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 25 Feb, 2021

Given first term (a), common difference (d) and a integer N of the Arithmetic Progression series, the task is to find Nthterm of the series.
Examples : 
 

Input : a = 2 d = 1 N = 5
Output :
The 5th term of the series is : 6

Input : a = 5 d = 2 N = 10
Output :
The 10th term of the series is : 23

Approach: 
 

We know the Arithmetic Progression series is like = 2, 5, 8, 11, 14 …. … 
In this series 2 is the stating term of the series . 
Common difference = 5 – 2 = 3 (Difference common in the series). 
so we can write the series as :
t1 = a1 
t2 = a1 + (2-1) * d 
t3 = a1 + (3-1) * d 



tN = a1 + (N-1) * d 
 

To find the Nth term in the Arithmetic Progression series we use the simple formula .
 

TN = a1 + (N-1) * d

 



 

C++




// CPP Program to find nth term of
// Arithmetic progression
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
int Nth_of_AP(int a, int d, int N)
{
    // using formula to find the
    // Nth term t(n) = a(1) + (n-1)*d
    return (a + (N - 1) * d);
     
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    // starting number
    int a = 2;
     
    // Common difference
    int d = 1;
     
    // N th term to be find
    int N = 5;
     
    // Display the output
    cout << "The "<< N
         <<"th term of the series is : "
         << Nth_of_AP(a,d,N);
 
    return 0;
}
