Building a series is a common arithmetic operation where a sequentially ordered set of numbers is produced following a laid-down pattern. We can build a simple geometric or linear series in Euphoria using the `series()`

method.

The ** series() method** is used to generate a geometric or a linear series. It does so by using a

`start_value`

that is the initial member of the series. Then, it increments it with the `increment`

until a certain amount of series items are generated. This amount is determined by `count`

. The `operator`

parameter indicates the type of series (linear or geometric).```
series(start,increment,count,operator)
```

: This is an object and is the first value of the series to be returned. It is a required parameter.`start`

: This is also an object and a required parameter. It is the value by which the series will be incremented either linearly or geometrically. A linear increment is done by adding the value to the last element of the series to get the next one. A geometric increment is done by multiplying the value with the last element of the series at any point in time to get the next.`increment`

: This is an integer value and a required parameter. It indicates the number of items generated by the series.`count`

: This is the arithmetic operator which acts as the series builder. It is an integer value. This parameter is optional and has a default value of`operator`

`+`

.

This function will return a new sequence series built from the object supplied.

Note:When a negative value is supplied as a`count`

or the increment value provided is not a valid object,`0`

is returned. However, with a valid`count`

, a sequence is returned whose length is equal to the`count`

. This is the length of the returned`count`

sequence.

--include some modules neededinclude std/sequence.e--define some variablesobject start = 2object increment = 3integer count = 10integer operator = 42--save the output of the series method in some variablessequence output1 = series(start,increment,count)sequence output2 = series(start,increment,count,operator)--display the outcome of using the series.print(1,output1)puts(1,"\n")print(1,output2)

An example of the series() method

The second series is a geometric series formed using the multiplication operator indicated by its integer value `42`

. This integer value is obtained by printing `print(1,"*")`

. It gives an integer representation of any operator in Euphoria.

- Line 2: We include the
`sequence.e`

module from the standard library. - Lines 5â€“8: We define the necessary variable.
- Lines 11 and 12: We use the
`series()`

method to create a series. - Lines 15â€“17: We display the output.
