The sum of the first n terms of a sequence is given by 4-4(1/2)^n.calculate the first 3 terms

  • Maths and science -

    term(1) = 4 - 4(1/2)^1 = 4 - 2 = 2
    term(2) = 4 - 4(1/2)^2= 4-4(1/4) = 3
    term(3) = 4-4(1/2)^3
    = 4 - 4(1/8)
    = 4 - 4/8
    = 4 - 1/2 = 3 1/2 or 7/2 or 3.5

    so to get any term, e.g. term(5), replace n with the term number you want, in this case n=5
