m1 = 428/9.81 m2 =195/9.81 195 - T = m2 a T = m1 a so 195 - m1 a = m2 a a = 195 /(m1+m2) which we should have said without doing all that

I am going to assume that you mean [ (n^2-4)/(n^2-2n) ] * n/(n^2+10n+16 ) Immediately you can see that n = 0 and n = 2 are excluded from the domain, also if n^2+10 n + 16 = 0 which is if n = -2 or -8 now [(n-2)(n+2)/n(n-2)] *n /[(n+2)(n+8)] = 1/(n+8)

**calculous (check)**

in general an = a 1 + (n-1) d so I think f(n) = 13 + (n-1)26 that is how far it falls DURING second number n now I bet F(n) is the total distance fallen which should approximate d = 16 t^2 if we are talking feet and seconds and g = 32 ft/s^2 that is the sum of our sequence ...
