Using the sequences in the previous problem, suppose we define a new sequence, s(n), defined as s(n) = q(t(n)), a compostion of two sequences. Do you think the new sequence will be arithmetic? Geometric? Neither? Explain. Make a table of values. Does the table support your hypothesis, or do you want to change your guess? Explain. Homework Help ✎

(n) = (50 − 7n)2 − 6(50 − 7n) + 17
Is this arithmetic, geometric, or quadratic?

Copy and complete the table.

Is there a constant difference or a constant multiplier?
