The term p (or rather, the term attached to n) represents the constant difference between terms. The term q represents the 'zeroth' term of the sequence.

It's just a more advanced phrasing of patterns like 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15... where the constant difference is 2.

I tried but when u do that, Sn=(n/2)(2q+pn) and when you sub n=3 it becomes 3=(3/2)(2q+3p) which equates to 2q+3p=2 and when u simultaneous with the equation from Tn u can’t get p=2
