find the difference .. note the difference in the difference is a multiple of 3

  • anonymous
Yes the first order difference is in Gp

and on...so do as @experimentX suggests, first examine any sort of relationship that could exist, you see that each termer is greater than the next
anonymous
  • anonymous
I suggest that you show us the values you have for the difference between the numbers in the series
anonymous
  • anonymous
Once, you have those differences, see if there is a pattern or relationship among them

term1 = 5 term2 = 8 term2 - term1 = 3 so term2 = term1 + 3 term3 = 17 term3 - term2 = 9 so term3 = term2 + 9 term4 = 44 term5 - term4 = 27 so term4 = term3 + 27 term5 = ...

it is the general formula lol1

ok look at the sequence first term is (3^1+7)/2=5 second is (3^2+7)/2=8 third is (3^3+8)/2=17 can you now tell me general formula ?

i like to get the first term to 1 alot of times 5 + 8 + 17 + 44 -4 -4 -4 -4 ----------------- 1 + 4 + 13 + 40 just helps me with the inbetween addings or if we up it by +1 5 + 8 + 17 + 44 +1 +1 +1 +1 ------------------- 6 + 9 + 18 + 45

factor out a 3 3( 2 + 3 + 6 + 15 + ...) all ways to se it differently

\[ t_n = t_{n-1} + 3^{n-1}\] this is the general rule \[ t_{n} = t_{n-2} + 3^{n -2} + 3^{n-1} \] continue this way and you will get \[ t_{n} = t_1 + 3 + 3^3 + 3^4+ .. + 3^{n -2} + 3^{n-1} = 5 + 3{ 3^{n-1} - 1 \over 3-1}\] which is requited formula
experimentX
  • experimentX
for summation \[ \sum_{n=1}^k {5 + {3 \over 2} (3^{n - 1 } - 1)} =\sum_{n=1}^k{7/2} + 3^n = k {7 \over 2}+ 3{3^k -1 \over 3-1} = k {7 \over 2}+ {3 \over 2}(3^k -1)\] @Yahoo! do you understand??
