find a6 for an arithmetic sequence where a1=3x+1 and d=2x+6.

2.A display of cans on a grocery shelf consists of 20 cans on the botton, 18 cans inthe next row, and so on in an arithmic sequence, until the to[p row has four cans. how many cans , in total, are in the display?

  • maths -

    a = 3x+1
    d = 2x+6

    term(6) = a + 5d
    = 3x+1 + 5(2x+6)
    = 13x + 31

    2.

    a = 20
    d = -2
    term(n) = 4
    4 = a + (n-1)d
    4 =20 - 2(n-1)
    4 = 20 - 2n + 2
    2n = 18
    n = 9

    sum(9) = (9/2)(first + last)
    = (9/2)(20+4) = 108
