5-77.

Write both an explicit equation and a recursive equation for the sequence $5,8,11,14,17,\dots$: Homework Help ✎

Are the terms in the sequence being added to or multiplied by? In other words, is the sequence arithmetic or geometric?

Explicit: t(n) = 3n + 2
Recursive: t(1) = 5; t(n+1) = t(n) + 3
