## Geometry_Hater 3 years ago A tree in the Amazon rain forest grows an average of 2.3cm per week. Write a sequence that represents the weekly height of the tree over the course of 1 year if it is 7 meters tall today. Write a recursive formula for the sequence.

1. RyanL.

let's make x the number of weeks. What would you multiply x by i this formula?

2. Geometry_Hater

52

3. RyanL.

ummm no that's the number of weeks in a year.

4. Geometry_Hater

52 weeks are in a year

5. RyanL.

yes that's what I said.

6. RyanL.

x is the changing variable in this case.

7. RyanL.

What is changing about the tree?

8. Geometry_Hater

the 2.3 cm?

9. RyanL.

yes correct. So you multiply x by 2.3cm Now initially we have the tree at 7 meters. So we have to add it to the formular 7meters + x*2.3cm=y where y is the height of the tree after a certain number of weeks You can convert all the values to the same SI unit like turn cm into meters or meters into cm so that everything is the same

ok thanks for helping
