# Program for N-th term of Arithmetic Progression series

Given first term (a), common difference (d) and a integer N of the Arithmetic Progression series, the task is to find N^{th}term 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 :t

_{1}= a_{1}

t_{2}= a_{1}+ (2-1) * d

t_{3}= a_{1}+ (3-1) * d

.

.

.

t_{N}= a_{1}+ (N-1) * d

To find the N^{th} term in the Arithmetic Progression series we use the simple formula .

T_{N}= a_{1}+ (N-1) * d
