17. Look at the pattern below.
24, 28, 32, 36, 40, . . .

Which expression represents the number in the pattern, where p is the position of the number in the pattern?

4(p + 5)
4p - 5
4(p + 4)
4p + 4

1. I'll give you a hint. The pattern starts at p=2. So we have p=2-p=6. Plug that in and see what you get. Someone can check it for you.

2. If your intent was to have 24 be the first number in the sequence, then 4(p + 5) represents all subsequent numbers.
