(a)Write an explicit formula for the sequence t.

(b)A second function is defined as s(n) = 2 + 2n. Compare the rates of change of t(n) and s(n).

(c)For what value(s) of n does t(n) = s(n)? Show your work.

rate of change of t(n) is 3

rate of change of s(n) is 2

set t(n) = s(n)

3n-4 = 2 + 2n

n = 6
