Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's an arithmetic sequence, the term's difference in (a) is 3 and the first term is 4 . since the formula for arithmetic seqence is Un=a+(n1)b the 50th term will be U50= 4+49.3=151

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then the nth term is Un=4+(n1).3 = 4+3n3= 3n+1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's better to find the formula for nth term first, then find the 50th term by plugging 50 into n b) 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, … 1st term= 7 difference = 2 nth term will be> Un= 2+(n1)2 = 2n 50th term = 2(50) = 100 c) 3, 8, 13, 18, 23, … 1st term = 3 difference = 5 nth term = 3+(n1)5 = 5n2 50th term = 5(50)2=248
