    you'll notice that -3 and -4 stay the same and that only the denominator of 4 is increasing by one

    so, you can conclude that the formula for this sequence is as follows: an = -3 -4/n for n to be any number :)

    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: \[a _{n}=4-5n\]

    hmmm, since ak = 8, and ak+1 = 7, the value is decreasing so I think it's: an = 8 - n

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

    Hey don't sweat it having a gf or bf or whatever I find tends to be a waste of time when you're young.... people treat dating like a board game now adays it's jus not cool
