suppose t(1)=-91 and -67 is another term of an arithmetic sequence, with. What is the equation of the nth term of the sequence if there are n terms between these two?

  • 9th grade math honors -

    Tn = a + (n-1)d
    T1 = -91 = a

    If there are n terms between -91 and -67, then -67 = Tn+2

    Tn+2 = -91 + (n+1)d = -67
    d = 24/(n+1)

    Tn = -91 + (n-1)*24/(n+1)

    Check: suppose there are 3 terms between -91 and -67. Then d = 24/4 = 6

    T: -91 (-85 -79 -73) -67 -61 ...
