an = -3 -4/n correct me if I'm wrong ^_^
anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous

sure, first write it down on paper and tell me what number do you see is changing?
anonymous
  • anonymous
you'll notice that -3 and -4 stay the same and that only the denominator of 4 is increasing by one
anonymous
  • anonymous
the denominator
anonymous
  • anonymous
exactly and you said assume n starts from n =1
anonymous
  • anonymous
right
anonymous
  • anonymous
so, you can conclude that the formula for this sequence is as follows: an = -3 -4/n for n to be any number :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
clear now? ^_^
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh ok so n is the number that's changing yes makes sense thanks
anonymous
  • anonymous
np :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
if I work out the problem like it could you check my work?
anonymous
  • anonymous
sure

Write the nth term of the arithmetic sequence as a function of n. \[a _{1}=4, a _{k+1}=a _{k}-5\] I think the answer is: \[a _{n}=4-5n\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Write the nth term of the arithmetic sequence as a function of n. \[a _{1}=8, a _{k+1}=a _{k}+7\] I think the answer is: \[a _{n}=8+7n\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep!
anonymous
  • anonymous
for both of them!?!
anonymous
  • anonymous
I guess, yes :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sweet Thank you so much for helping me!
anonymous
  • anonymous
you are most welcome ^_^! good luck!
anonymous
  • anonymous
but I'm not really sure of the answers though, they look good :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol well Ijust turned in the test and I got both those wrong:( lol still got a B but oh well lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
hmmm, since ak = 8, and ak+1 = 7, the value is decreasing so I think it's: an = 8 - n
anonymous
  • anonymous
oops >_< my bad! I'm sorry you got them wrong :(
anonymous
  • anonymous
so if n = 1, then an = 8 -1 = 7
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm really sorry, I should've used my head >_< at first. Dearest apologies!
anonymous
  • anonymous
That's ok no biggy the last one I posted the answer is 1+7n
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ha ha don't sweat it it's all good
anonymous
  • anonymous
close? ^^"
anonymous
  • anonymous
alright, next time I'll make sure to be accurate! :)

anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
I have a simple question for you, "Do you want Friends?" answer with a "yes/no" only
anonymous
  • anonymous
i have girls asking me out all the time (yes it it sounds crazy, but for some reason they do it), but I feel they just care about the looks and not the real me
anonymous
  • anonymous
YES, GOOD friends
anonymous
  • anonymous
not fake short term ones
anonymous
  • anonymous
That's it! you've stated what you have wanted, then you're done, all you've got to do is be patient and they'll come + stop thinking abt it now :) and move on ^_^ with your life
anonymous
  • anonymous
those are called acquaintances... There will be a lt of those I have a lot of them anyways but have you ever thought that spome of those acquaintances come to you for a certain reason, like there is something that attracts them to you... you're nice, funny, they like being around you part of it is leading by example, listening eventually they catch on and you both earn respect for eachother
anonymous
  • anonymous
you said what you've wanted, and you'll get it, stop thinking abt it and move on ahead. Simple as that ~
anonymous
  • anonymous
