Linguistic Note on Arithmetic Sequence
In the context of an arithmetic sequence or arithmetic-geometric sequence, the word arithmetic is pronounced with the stress on the first and third syllables: a-rith-me-tic, rather than on the second syllable: a-rith-me-tic.
This is because the word is being used in its adjectival form.
