Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4I'm going to give wrong answers :( T(n) = 6+1.6(n1) S(n) = [6+ ( 6+1.6(n1)) ] n/2 = (12+1.6n 1.6) n/2 = (1.6n^2 + 10.4n)/2 = 0.8n^2 + 5.2n p= 0.8, q=5.2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a is first term right? A_n = 6 +(n1)1.6 A_n = 6 + 1.6n  1.6 A_n = 4.4 + 1.6n S_n = n(A_1 + A_n)/2 pn^2 + qn = n(6 + 4.4 + 1.6n)/2 n(pn + q) = n(10.4 + 1.6n)/2 pn + q = 5.2 + 0.8n
