That's correct.

good work

- AccessDenied

with the squared, since im really good at not noticing that

- AccessDenied

\[ \sum_{n=1}^{6} (1-(\frac{n}{6})^{2}) = (1-(\frac{1}{6})^{2}) + (1-(\frac{2}{6})^{2}) + ... + (1-(\frac{6}{6})^2) \]

I'm trying to do a whole chapter in one night, so let's pull an all nighter?!:D

- Lukecrayonz

Uhh, im stuck D:

- Lukecrayonz

Write the first five terms of the arithmetic sequence. Find the common difference and write the nth term of the sequence as a function of n.

- AccessDenied

i came online to find method of approximating square roots, snce i didnt want to pull out calculator. lol

- Lukecrayonz

a[1]=0.375, a[k+1]=a[k]+0.25

- AccessDenied

seems like the common difference would be 0.25 since k and k+1 are successive terms of the sequence and we add 0.25 to a(k) to get a(k+1), i gotta check that again to make sure -- it's been a while since i did this stuff. ;x

- Lukecrayonz

Here's an example answer, if this helps. http://screensnapr.com/v/2PVSpz.png

- AccessDenied

a_(k+1) = a_1 + (k+1 -1)d
= a_1 + kd
a_k = a_1 + (k-1)d
= a_1 + kd - d
= (a_(k+1)) - d --> a_(k+1) = a_1 + kd - d + d
= (a_k) + d
yeah, sounds about right
0.25 being the common difference, i'd just add 0.25 to the first term five times
0.375 + 0.25 = 0.625
0.625 + 0.25 = 0.845 etc

- Lukecrayonz

I THINK it's a[2]=0.375+0.25=.625
a[3]=.625+0.25=0.875

- AccessDenied

oh, i added wrong, 0.875 -not using calculator-

- Lukecrayonz

a[4]0.875+.25=1.125
a[5]1.125+.25=1.375

- Lukecrayonz

When you do a_k, do you mean sub k? Because when I put sub I put [k]

- AccessDenied

yeah, when you use equation thing, sub-k is a_k, so that's why I use the _'s

- Lukecrayonz

So when I'm doing the nth term of the sequence and writing the function for it, what would that be?

- Lukecrayonz

a[n].375n+.25?

- AccessDenied

A(n) = a_1 + (n-1)d; d = common difference, a_1 = first term
would be the general form I'd use

- Lukecrayonz

Thank you! I think mine would work but yours seems more sophisticated.

- Lukecrayonz

Oh hey, your formula is the exact formula I'm using for my next questions.

- Lukecrayonz

a[1]=0, d=-2/3

- AccessDenied

well, if you test n=1, .375 + .25 = .625, which was the second term

- Lukecrayonz

0+(n-1)(-2/3)

- AccessDenied

yep, looks correct there. :D
I don't know of a more intuitive way to remember the formula except just using it often, since I actually forgot it since going over it in Algebra, though.

- Lukecrayonz

hmm, another question..

- Lukecrayonz

Find the nth partial sum of the arithmetic series,
a[1]=1.5
d=.5
n=20
If it matters, the series is 1.5, 1.45, 1.40, 1.35

- Lukecrayonz

I think the formula S[n]=n/2(a[1]+a[n]) would be used?

- Lukecrayonz

Just kidding far from that.

- Lukecrayonz

Don't even have a a[n]! Haha, what was I thinking :P

- AccessDenied

my source with the formulas for this says the (a[1] + a[n] is in numerator

- Lukecrayonz

Here's an example answer, maybe this could clear up what the formula is..? http://screensnapr.com/v/zVwwkZ.png

- AccessDenied

yeah, that looks accurate to the formula I found
\[ S_n = \frac{n(a_1 + a_n)}{2} \]
I guess it wants you to find the arithmetic series equation, substitute in n=20 to it, and then use the formula for the nth partial sum

- Lukecrayonz

http://screensnapr.com/v/x2890d.png But in that, where the hell did 9 come from?

- Lukecrayonz

n-1?

- AccessDenied

n-1, n = 10 => 10-1 = 9

- Lukecrayonz

So i got a[10]=1.5+19(.5)=11

- Lukecrayonz

a[20] sorry

- AccessDenied

yep, that's what I got as well

- Lukecrayonz

Then i got s[20]=10(1.5+11)

- Lukecrayonz

which equals 125

- AccessDenied

Yep, got 125 as well. :)

- Lukecrayonz

BOO! REAL WORLD APPLICATION PROBLEMS!

- Lukecrayonz

http://screensnapr.com/v/YRvm1X.png

- Lukecrayonz

15*16*17*18*19*20*21? Haha

- Lukecrayonz

Adding not multiplying, that would be an incredible amount of logs.

- Lukecrayonz

Uhh, a[1]=15, a[6]=21 and s[6]=21/2(15+21)=126

- AccessDenied

i think the seventh term should be 21 since there are seven rows, with the first row being 15, sevond is 16, third is 17, fourth = 18, 5th = 19, 6th = 20, and 7th = 21

- AccessDenied

but it does appear that 126 is correct.
