Sequences Terms

Get down with the lingo


A sequence is a list of objects where each object can be enumerated.

Arithmetic Sequence

A list of numbers where each term increases or decreases by the addition or subtraction of a constant value.

Geometric Sequence

A geometric sequence is a sequence of numbers where every two consecutive terms has a common ratio.

Limit Of A Sequence

The limit of a sequence is the real number that the terms of the sequence get close to after a finite number of terms.

Convergent Sequence

If the limit of a sequence exists, the sequence is convergent.

Divergent Sequence

If the limit of a sequence does not exists, the sequence is divergent.

Bounded Sequence

If the terms of the sequence are less than a real number, the sequence is bounded above. If the terms are greater than a real number it is bounded below.
