Answer

The first five terms are: $a_1= A$ $a_2 = A+d$ $a_3 = A+2d$ $a_4 = A + 3d$ $a_5= A+4d$

Work Step by Step

Use the given recursive formula to find the next four terms: $a_1= A$ $a_2 = a_1 + d = A+d$ $a_3 = a_2 + d = (A+d)+d = A+2d$ $a_4 = a_3 + d = (A+2d)+d = A + 3d$ $a_5= a_4 + d = (A+3d)+d = A+4d$
