Algebra 2

Write the first five terms of a sequence. Don’t make your sequence too simple. Write both an explicit formula and a recursive formula for a general term in the sequence. Explain in detail how you found both formulas.

My answer is 15, 30, 45, 60, 75 I don't know how to do the rest please help.
