## Linguistic Note on Arithmetic Progression

In the context of an **arithmetic progression** or **arithmetic-geometric progression**, the word **arithmetic** is pronounced with the stress on the first and third syllables: ** a-rith-me-tic**, rather than on the second syllable:

**a-**.

*rith*-me-ticThis is because the word is being used in its adjectival form.
