the first five terms of a sequence are shown below:
8,6,4,2,0 ...
What is the 100th term in the sequence?
A. -192
B. -190
C. -108
D. -90
I know how to figure this out but it would take a few minutes. There UST be some sort of formula?

• 100th term of sequence? -

the first five terms of a linear sequence are 8,6,4,2,0....
What is the 100th term of the sequence?
I could figure this out with a few minutes of patience. But I know there is formula which I cannot find anymore to solve it quicker :)
