1.an = 3n - 1

2. an = 2(2n - 3)
3.an = 4^n
4.an = (2/3)^n
5. an = (-1)^n(n + 5)
6. an = (-1)^n + 1(n + 6)
7. an= n+3/2n-1
8. a1 = -5 and an = an-1 - 3 for n ≥ 2
9. a1 = -6 and an = -2an-1 for n ≥ 2

Question 17


Write a formula for the general term (the nth term) of the arithmetic sequence. Then use the formula for an to find a20, the 20th term of the sequence.

1, 4, 7, 10, 13, . . .
Answer

an = 3n + 2; a20 = 62

an = n + 3; a20 = 23

an = 3n - 2; a20 = 58

an = 2n - 3; a20 = 37

Question 18


Write a formula for the general term (the nth term) of the arithmetic sequence. Then use the formula for an to find a20, the 20th term of the sequence.

25, 16 , 7, -2, . . .
Answer

an = -9n + 25; a20 = -155

an = -9n + 34; a20 = -146

an = 9n - 25; a20 = 155

an = 9n - 34; a20 = 146
