Most interesting and useful finding the missing terms in the arithmetic sequence calculator tool is the best free tool that helps to calculate the missing terms in the arithmetic sequence. To use this calculator, enter the parameters and press the calculate button that gives the output immediately.

**Enter missing terms as x .Enter the terms seperated by commas
For eg: 1) 1,x,x,4,x 2)x,x,6,x,9 3) 5,x,x,x,11 4) x,8,x,x,x,20,x
Here x represents the missing terms**

### How to Solve the Missing Terms in the Arithmetic Sequence?

An arithmetic sequence is a set of numbers that has a difference between two consecutive terms that are constant. The sequence of numbers is represented as commas, i.e., 1,2,3,4,.....

And the formula of the arithmetic sequence is

**a _{n} = a_{1} + (n - 1) d**

a_{n }= nth term of the sequence.

a_{1} = 1st term of the sequence.

d = common difference.

We will give you the guidelines to calculate the missing terms of the arithmetic sequence easily.

- Firstly, take the values that were given in the problem.
- After that, apply the formulas for the missing terms.
- And then simplify the missing terms.
- Finally, you will get the answer easily.

**Example:**

**Question: **Find the missing terms of the arithmetic sequence 4, ____ , _____ , 8?

**Solution:**

Given, 4, ____ , _____ , 8.

a = 4, a_{4} = 8.

a + 3d = 8.

4 + 3d = 8.

3d = 8-4.

**d = 4/3.**

a_{2} = a + d

= 4 + 4/3

= (12 + 4)/3.

= 16/3.

a_{3} = a + 2d

= 4 + 2 (4/3)

= 6.

Therefore, the missing terms of the sequence are 4, 16/3,6,8.
