Think about the difference between a function and a sequence as you answer the questions below.
A certain sequence has an explicit equation of
. Is it possible for this sequence to have a term with the value of ? If so, which term is it? If not, justify why not.
Now think about a function with the equation of
. Is it possible for this function to have an output of ? If so, what input gives this output? If not, justify why not.
Solve the same equation as shown in part (a);
be a possible input for a function?
