Avery and Collin were trying to challenge each other with equations for sequences. Avery was looking at an explicit equation that Collin wrote. Homework Help ✎

  1. Write the first terms for the sequence.

  2. What would Avery do to write the term of this sequence?

    She would evaluate the equation for .

  3. Write a recursive equation for this sequence.

    A recursive equation is built using .

    As you look at the first four terms (from part (a)), how is the next term calculated for each term?
