d represents a constant called common difference
You may also use the following formula that allows you to find any term of arithmetic progression, if you know the first term and the common difference, such that:
`a_n = a_1 + (n-1)*d`
Considering as a worked example the following problem that provides the first terms of an arithmetic progression, `a_1 = 2` and the third term `a_3 = 8` ...
