Sum of Arithmetic Geometric Sequence
  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 25 Apr, 2018

In mathematics, an arithmetico–geometric sequence is the result of the term-by-term multiplication of a geometric progression with the corresponding terms of an arithmetic progression.


is an arithmetico–geometric sequence.

Given the value of a(First term of AP), n(Number of terms), d(Common Difference), b(First term of GP), r(Common ratio of GP). The task is find the sum of first n term of the AGP.

Examples:

Input : First term of AP, a = 1, 
        Common difference of AP, d = 1, 
        First term of GP, b = 2, 
        Common ratio of GP r = 2,
        Number of terms, n = 3
Output : 34
Explanation
Sum = 1*2 + 2*22 + 3*23
    = 2 + 8 + 24
    = 34



The nth term of an arithmetico–geometric sequence is the product of the n-th term of an arithmetic sequence and the nth term of a geometric one. Arithmetico–geometric sequences arise in various applications, such as the computation of expected values in probability theory. For example Counting Expected Number of Trials until Success.

n-th term of an AGP is denoted by: tn = [a + (n – 1) * d] * (b * rn-1)

Method 1: (Brute Force)
The idea is to find each term of the AGP and find the sum.

Below is the implementation of this approach:

C++




// CPP P rogram to find the sum of first n terms.
#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
  
// Return the sum of first n term of AGP
int sumofNterm(int a, int d, int b, int r, int n)
{      
    // finding the each term of AGP and adding
    // it to sum.
    int sum = 0;
    for (int i = 1; i <= n ; i++)    
        sum += ((a + (i -1) * d) * (b * pow(r, i - 1)));  
    return sum;
}
  
// Driven Program
int main()
{
    int a = 1, d = 1, b = 2, r = 2, n = 3;
    cout << sumofNterm(a, d, b, r, n) << endl;
    return 0;


Java




// Java Program to find the sum of first n terms.
import java.io.*;
  
class GFG {
      
    // Return the sum of first n term of AGP
    static int sumofNterm(int a, int d, int b, int r, int n)
    {      
        // finding the each term of AGP and adding
        // it to sum.
        int sum = 0;
        for (int i = 1; i <= n ; i++)    
            sum += ((a + (i -1) * d) * (b * Math.pow(r, i - 1)));  
        return sum;
    }
      
     
    // Driven Program
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        int a = 1, d = 1, b = 2, r = 2, n = 3;
        System.out.println(sumofNterm(a, d, b, r, n));
          
    }
}

def sumofNterm( a , d , b ,

    # finding the each term 
    # of AGP and adding it to sum.
    sum = 0
    for i in range(1,n+1):
        sum += ((a + (i -1) * d) * 
            (b * math.pow(r, i - 1)))
    return int(sum)

        int sum = 0;
        for (int i = 1; i <= n ; i++) 
            sum += (int)((a + (i -1) * d) *
                         (b * Math.Pow(r, i - 1))); 
        return sum;
    }

// PHP program to find the

// Return the sum of first 
// n term of AGP
function sumofNterm($a, $d, $b, $r, $n)
      
    // finding the each term
    // of AGP and adding
    // it to sum.
    $sum = 0;
    for ($i = 1; $i <= $n ; $i++) 
        $sum += (($a + ($i -1) * $d) * 
                 ($b * pow($r, $i - 1))); 
    return $sum;
}
  
// Driver Code
$a = 1; $d = 1; $b = 2; $r = 2; $n = 3;
echo(sumofNterm($a, $d, $b, $r, $n));

Method 2: (Using Formula)

Proof,

Series,
Sn = ab + (a+d)br + (a+2d)br2 + ..... + (a + (n-1)d)brn-1

Multiplying Sn by r,
rSn = abr + (a+d)br2 + (a+2d)br3 + ..... + (a + (n-1)d)brn

Subtract rSn from Sn,
(1 - r)Sn = [a + (a + d)r + (a + 2d)r2 + ...... + [a + (n-1)d]rn-1] 
           - [ar + (a + d)r2 + (a + 2d)r3 + ...... + [a + (n-1)d]rn]
          = b[a + d(r + r2 + r3 + ...... + rn-1) 
            - [a + (n-1)d]rn]
          (Using sum of geometric series Sn  = a(1 - rn-1)/(1-r))
          = b[a + dr(1 - rn-1)/(1-r) - [a + (n-1)d]rn]
