If the difference between all the consecutive terms is same then they are in AP. For ex 3,7,11,15,19..... Here difference (7-3) =(11-7) =(15-11) and so on.. between all the consecutive terms is 4. So they are in AP.

Subtract the adjacent numbers of a series and note down the result. If the result of subtraction is same all the subtractions then it is a arithmetic progression series. In other words, An arithmetic progression is a sequence of numbers such that the difference of any two successive members is a constant.... read more

A sequence is in AP when the difference between all the consecutive pairs is same. Eg:2,5,8,11,14,17,20,23...... difference is (5-2) = (8-5) = (11-8) and so on....

for arithmetic progression , numbers should be in sequence with common difference.. e.g.- 2 , 4 , 6 , 8 , 10 here common difference between two succesive numbers is 2 ..so they are in A.P.
