I think you mean $\text{homologous series}$.........
A late answer, but I think you mean an $\text{homologous series}$.........a series of (typically) organic compounds with the same general formula. And one such series is the $\text{alkanes}$, which has general formula ${C}_{n} {H}_{2 n + 2}$, $\left(n = 1 , 2 , 3 , \ldots .\right)$
And another such series is the $\text{alkenes}$, which has general formula ${C}_{n} {H}_{2 n}$, $\left(n = 1 , 2 , 3 , \ldots .\right)$.
