Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think it is because the graph is going by 6 every time or well it is taking away six every time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ehh... in reality it depends what you call the first value of the sequence :P. is that x= 0 or x=1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's f(n) = 1 6n where n=0 is the first element.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can change it if you want n=1 to be the first element

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what you have defined is called a "recursion" meaning the next term is 6 less than the last one. it would be written as \[a_n=a_{n1}6\] but i do't think that is what is asked for

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ha i dont know.. the question just says write a function rule for that sequence :P its supposed to be along the lines of f(x) (stuff here)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since you are decreasing by 6 each time, then you have a line with slope 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no you have the right idea, but i think you need something like \[f(x)=6x+5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you are looking for a function. if you are looking for the rule for a sequence then it would be \[a_n=a_{n1}6, a_1=1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh.. well atleast i had the right idea :)
