From Wikipedia
In mathematics, an arithmetic progression (AP) or arithmetic sequence is a sequence of numbers such that the difference between the consecutive terms is constant. Difference here means the second minus the first. For instance, the sequence 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, . . . is an arithmetic progression with common difference of 2.
In mathematics, a geometric progression, also known as a geometric sequence, is a sequence of numbers where each term after the first is found by multiplying the previous one by a fixed, non-zero number called the common ratio. For example, the sequence 2, 6, 18, 54, ... is a geometric progression with common ratio 3. Similarly 10, 5, 2.5, 1.25, ... is a geometric sequence with common ratio 1/2.
Example:
Sample Input: int nums1[] = { 1, 3, 5, 7 }
Sample Output: Arithmetic sequence

``````#include <iostream>
#include <string>

using namespace std;

string arith_geo_sequence(int nums[], const int size) {

int diff_arith = 0, diff_geo = 0;
bool arith_flag = true, geo_flag = true;

diff_arith = nums[1] - nums[0];
diff_geo = nums[1] / nums[0];

for (int y = 0; y < size-1 && arith_flag; y++)
{
arith_flag = false;

if (nums[y] + diff_arith == nums[y + 1])
{
arith_flag = true;
}
}
for (int z = 0; z < size - 1 && geo_flag; z++)
{
geo_flag = false;

if (nums[z] * diff_geo == nums[z + 1])
{
geo_flag = true;
}
}

if (arith_flag)
{
return "Arithmetic sequence";
}
else if (geo_flag)
{
return "Geometric sequence";
}
else
{
return "Not Arithmetic/Geometric sequence";
}
}

int nums3[] = { 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 };
