    \[T _{n}=a+(n-1)d\] a=14 \[T _{2}=a+(2-1)d=22\] a+d=22 d=22-14=8 \[T _{19}=14+(19-1)8=158\]

    Okay, so you go 1 term back and find the 20th term instead of 19th right? @madscientist101

    The difference between each term is 8. It starts with 14 so it must be 14+8(x-1)... because the you don't want the 14 to be counted as the first term.. although it is... 14+8(x-1) = 14+8x-8 =6+8x @Foolformath
