i found this question about sequences and i don’t seem to know how to continue any further. “The sum of the first n terms of an arithmetic progression is 1/2(3n 7). Find the first term and the common difference of the progression.” Any help would be appreciated xx (btw reference is nov.17 paper 12)

i found this question about sequences and i don’t seem to know how to continue any further. “The sun of the first n terms of an arithmetic progression is 1/2(3n+7). Find the first term and the common difference of the progression.” This is what i’ve done so far but i’m not sure how to eliminate any of the variables. Any help would be appreciated xx (btw reference is nov.17 paper 12)
If a_n is the sequence, and S_n the sum, then S_n = a_1 + a_2 + ... + a_n.

So, what do you get if you calculate S_n - S_{n-1}?

a_n?
Yes. So since you are given a formula for S_n, you can find a formula for a_n. Once you have a_n, then a_1 is the first term, and a_k - a_{k-1} should equal the same thing for any choice of k and be the common difference.
