Find the common difference and a formula formula for the nth term of the arithmetic sequence; 6, 2, 2, 6, 10,...a sub n =
a)64n
b)62n
c)102n
d)104n
I think it is c but want to check.
Ao is 10, then each term subtracts 4n from it....n=1, ...
well if 6 is equal to the first term of the sequesnce the only one that would work would be d.
1st = 6 so 104(1)=6 where n is the number of the term
2nd = 2 so 104(2)=2
3rd term = 2 so 104(3)=2
Hope that helped.
