3.8 Arithmetic or Geometric Series

Arithmetic series is defined by:
a + (a+d) + (a+2d) + (a+3d) + ..... + (a+(n-1)d) = n (2 a + (n - 1) d) / 2

Geometric series is defined by:
a + ar + ar2 + ar3 + ..... + arn-1 = a (1 - rn) / (1 - r), for r not equal to 1

Examples:
3, 8, 13, 18, 23, . . . arithmetic sequence with common value of 5
1, 2, 4, 8, 16, . . . . . geometric sequence with common ratio of 2
24, 12, 6, 3, 3/2, 3/4, . . geometric sequence with common ratio of 1/2
55, 51, 47, 43, 39, 35, . . . arithmetic sequence with common value of - 4
2, 5, 10, 17, . . . Neither arithmetic nor geometric
3, 11, 19, 27, 35, . . . arithmetic sequence with common value of 8
2/9, 2/3, 2, 6, 18, . . . geometric sequence with common ratio of 3
1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 11, . . . Neither arithmetic nor geometric
9, 6, 3, 0, -3, -6 . . . arithmetic sequence with common value of -3
9, 9, 9, 9, 9, 9 . . . either arithmetic or geometric with common value of 0 or common ratio of 1
1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, . . . Neither arithmetic nor geometric
