**Find the next four terms of each arithmetic sequence.**

** **

**$\frac{18}{5},\frac{16}{5},\frac{14}{5},...$**

The next four terms of the arithmetic sequence are $\frac{12}{5},2,\frac{8}{5},\frac{6}{5}$**.**

The given arithmetic sequence is $\frac{18}{5},\frac{16}{5},\frac{14}{5},...$

A sequence is said to be arithmetic when the difference between the consecutive terms is always the same.

Here the difference between the first two terms is $\frac{16}{5}-\frac{18}{5}=-\frac{2}{5}$

The difference between the next two terms is $\frac{14}{5}-\frac{16}{5}=-\frac{2}{5}$

So, the common difference is $-\frac{2}{5}$

The next term in the arithmetic sequence is $\frac{14}{5}-\frac{2}{5}=\frac{12}{5}$

The next term in the arithmetic sequence is $\frac{12}{5}-\frac{2}{5}=\frac{10}{5}=2$

The next term in the arithmetic sequence is $2-\frac{2}{5}=\frac{8}{5}$.

The next term in the arithmetic sequence is $\frac{8}{5}-\frac{2}{5}=\frac{6}{5}$.

Hence, the next four terms of the arithmetic sequence are $\frac{12}{5},2,\frac{8}{5},\frac{6}{5}$.
