Since an arithmetic sequence has a constant difference, d, we can graph it much like we would a linear relationship with a constant slope. Let the independent axis, or x axis, represent the term number and the term itself will be graphed on the dependent, or y axis. Hence, the first term in your number pattern will be the y-coordinate that is paired with x = 1. You should end up with a relatively linear result where d is the slope, or constant change, from one term to the next.
