The following is a list of free SAT Practice questions that typically appear from sequences and series. Arithmetic and Geometric sequences are tested and includes the following concepts : sum of sequence, average of sequence, finding a specific term of a sequence, terms common to two sequences, and questions combining terms that may be part of both an arithmetic progression and a geometric progression. You may also be tested on series and sequence defined by a rule.
