# What is the common difference between successive terms in the sequence? 2, 8, 14, 20, 26, ...

The given sequence follows an arithmetic progression.

## Answer: The common difference between successive terms in the sequence: 2, 8, 14, 20, 26, ... is d = 6

Let us find the common difference of the given arithmetic progression.

**Explanation:**

The common difference is the value between each number in an arithmetic sequence.

In general, the common difference is the difference between every two successive terms of an AP.

The formula for calculating the common difference of an AP is: d = a_{n }- a_{n-1}

Here, d = a_{2} - a_{1} = 8 - 2 = 6

2, 8, 14, 20, 26, ... = 2, (2+6), (8+ 6), (14 + 6),.......
