Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The sequence I used is T = R • t + I. I used this because the tuition follows a steady sequence, we can move forward or backward in the sequence to know the cost of tuition by multiplying the rate of increase by the time and adding it to the starting cost of tuition.
