i need help figuring out this question! :)

write a equation for this sequence. then find the 100th term.

term number 1 2 3 4
term 6 10 14 18

Take a guess that the answer is a line.

Use any to points where the term number is x and the term value is y. Sove for the slope and intercept.

Terms 2 and 4 would give:
m * 2 + b = 10
m * 4 + b = 18

m = (18 - 10) / (4 - 2) = 8 / 2 = 4

If m = 4, what is b? (just substitute)

WHAT!!!!!!!!!

okay rebekka i don't get this question it says how many days will it take you to spend \$i 000 000,if each day you spend each amount?

\$ioo oo \$io ooo \$1000 \$100 \$10

The 100th term will be:
100 * m + b

m = 4 and b = ?

The 100th term is 402
