# What is arithmetic progression?

In mathematics, an arithmetic progression (AP) is a sequence of numbers such that the difference between the consecutive terms is constant.

For example:

1, 3, 5, 7, 9, . . .

Each term is 2 more than the term preceding it. Here the difference between the consecutive term is constant, so this is an arithmetic progression.
