Free **Harmonic Sequence Calculator** finds the nth term of harmonic sequence when a = 3, n=8, and d=5 in a fraction of seconds.

## 8th Term of Harmonic Sequence a = 3, n=8, and d=5 is 0.02632

Steps to find nth term of harmonic sequence:

**nth term of harmonic sequence formula:-**

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

**where:**

- a
_{n}is the nth term - a is first term
- n is total number of terms
- d is common difference

**Input values are:-**

a = 3

n = 8

d = 5

**Put values into formula**

a_{8} = `1/(a + (n-1) *d )`

a_{8} =`1/(3 + (8-1) *5 )`

**a _{8} = 0.02632**

Go through the detailed steps to calculate the nth term of harmonic sequence when a = 3, n=8, and d=5.

- Note down the input values such as a = 3, n=8, and d=5
- Substitute the values in the nth term of harmonic sequence formula i.e a
_{n}= 1/[a + (n - 1) . d] - Solve the equation to know the given harmonic sequence nth term value.

### Example for Finding nth term of Harmonic Sequence

### FAQs on Finding the Harmonic Sequence nth Term a = 3, n=8, and d=5

**1. What is the nth term of the harmonic sequence a = 3, n=8, and d=5?**

The value of the 5th term of the harmonic sequence a = 3, n=8, and d=5 is 0.02632.

**2. What is the formula of the nth term of the harmonic sequence?**

Nth term of Harmonic Progression HP formula is a_{n} = 1/[a + (n - 1)d].

**3. How do you find the nth term of a harmonic sequence a = 3, n=8, and d=5?**

The simple step is place the first term a = 3, total number of terms n = 8 and common difference d = 5 in the formula an = 1/[a + (n - 1)d] i.e a_{5} = 1/[3 + (8 - 1)5] = 0.02632.
