Homework Help: Discrete Math

Posted by Francesca on Tuesday, March 29, 2011 at 12:09pm.

I want to verify that this is correct:

An arithmetic sequence begins, 116, 109, 102

Determine whether -480 belongs to this sequence, if it does, what is its term number?

-480 = 116 + (n - 1)(-7)
n - 1 = 85.142. . .
So, that means -480 does not belong to this sequence, right? Thank you for any helpful replies!
