A sequence starts
If you wanted to find the
term of the sequence, would an explicit equation or a recursive equation be more useful?
Recall the definitions of explicit and recursive equations.
Write the equation in “first term” form as you did in problem 7-108.
Refer to problem 7-108 to recall what the first term form means.
What is the
term of the sequence?
Insert 50 for n in the equation you found in part (b).
Write the explicit equation for the sequence
, , , , ... in “first term” form.
