Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2this is an arithmetic series with first term 6 and common difference 2. This means that 2 is added to each term to get the next the formula for the nth term is a + d(n  1) where a = first term , d = common difference and n = term number so if you plug in a = 6 , d = 2 and n = 30 into this formula you can work out thr 3oth term
