Utilize our **Harmonic sequence calculator** tool for finding the sum of n terms of harmonic sequence when n=8, a=5, and d = 4 easily and quickly. So that you will get the result of 1/152.0.

## Sum of first 8 terms of Harmonic Sequence of a = 5, n=8, and d=4 is 0.61418

Steps to find sum of n terms of harmonic sequence:

**sum of n terms of harmonic sequence formula:-**

S_{n} = `(1/d)*ln( (2*a+(2*n-1)*d)/(2*a-d) )`

**where:**

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

**Input values are:-**

a = 5

n = 8

d = 4

**Put values into formula**

S_{8} = `(1/d)*ln( (2*a+(2*n-1)*d)/(2*a-d) )`

S_{8} = `(1/4)*ln( (2*5+(2*8-1)*4)/(2*5-4) )`

**S _{8} = 0.61418**

Following are the step by step process to find the sum of N terms in a harmonic sequence easily by hand.

- Firstly, Write down the values that were given in the problem, such as a = 5, n=8, and d=4.
- As we know that arithmetic progression is the reciprocal of harmonic progression.
- Apply the formula of sum of n term of Arithmetic Progression, i.e., Sn = n/2[2a + (n − 1) × d]
- Substitute the values in the formula, i.e., Sn = 8/2[2*5 + (8 − 1) × 4].
- Simplify the equation, i.e., Sn = 8/2[2*5 + (8-1) × 4] = 152.0
- At last , the sum of n terms of Arithmetic progression is 152.0.
- Finally, the result of sum of n terms of Harmonic sequence is 1/152.0
