This online tool can help you to find $n^{th}$ term and the sum of the first $n$ terms of an arithmetic progression. Also, this calculator can be used to solve much more complicated problems. For example, the calculator can find the common difference ($d$) if $a_5 = 19 $ and $S_7 = 105$. The biggest advantage of this calculator is that it will generate all the work with detailed explanation.

Definition:
Arithmetic sequence is a list of numbers where each number is equal to the previous number, plus a constant. The constant is called the common difference ($d$).
Formulas:
The formula for finding $n^{th}$ term of an arithmetic progression is $\color{blue}{a_n = a_1 + (n1) d}$, where $\color{blue}{a_1}$ is the first term and $\color{blue}{d}$ is the common difference.
The formulas for the sum of first $n$ numbers are $\color{blue}{S_n = \frac{n}{2} \left( 2a_1 + (n1)d \right)}$ and $\color{blue}{S_n = \frac{n}{2} \left(a_1 + a_n \right)}$.
