since 1^2=1, 2^2=4, 3^2=9, 4^2=16,...,n^2

so what would the nth term be?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh n^2 ok

The first differences would be 3, 20, 38, 62. The second differences would be 12, 18, 23 and 30. The third difference would be 6 for all of them

Oh I meant 24 not 23

Are you still there?

That's funny. Both answers are correct. My answer was that the nth term was the sum of the first n odd natural numbers. So the first number is 1, the second is 1+3=4, the third is 1+3+5=9, the fourth is 1+3+5+7 = 16
