5-106.

Read the Math Notes box in this lesson for information about an alternative notation for sequences and write the first 5 terms of these sequences.

*a*_{1}= 2(1) − 5*a*_{2}= 2(2) − 5

Note that

*a*_{1}is given.*a*_{2}:*a*_{1+1}= −2 ·*a*_{1}*a*_{2}= −2(3)*a*_{3}:*a*_{2+1}= −2 ·*a*_{2}*a*_{3}= −2(−6)
