That's cool. Most people on OS are Christians. I'm a Muslim btw.
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Alright, so moving along. I want you to learn how to solve them step by step so that you can solve rest of the problems on your own.
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Sure it is. ;D
anonymous
  • anonymous
:( okay
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Why are you sad? You should be happy im helping you learn. lmao.

  • anonymous
Yes,I am, but, what if i do the rest except one and you check?
anonymous
  • anonymous
because,earlier you were going to leave after explaining right?
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Question 6. Ask me where you're stuck. 10, 18, 26, 34, 42 T = a + (n-1)d Where a is the first term. n is the term you have to find. And d is the common difference. Step 1. Find d. subtract any 2 adjacent term. Let's say 42 and 34 42-34 = 8 So d =8 Now insert the values in the formula. T = a + (n-1)d
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
I still have to leave. Will do in 10 mins. Just staying to help you learn.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok,thanks
anonymous
  • anonymous

  • anonymous
saifoo?
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Back!
anonymous
  • anonymous
o ok:)
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
So?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Umm, im in pre algebra, could you explain it in a simpler way?
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
But dont you'll be needing the same formula to find term?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I dont know,we were only given this just today
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Hey wait! i just found out there is q1-5 too! lol.
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Solve that first.
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol yay!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
awwww.you are a strict teacher
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
lol. Okay. So for "nth" term, there's a formula. T = a + (n-1)d Where a is the first term. n is the term you have to find. And d is the common difference. You have to learn this formula. If you're through till here then i'll move forward.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay.
anonymous
  • anonymous
its the same for all of them?
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Okay. So what is d? it's the common difference. To find it, subtract any two adjacent terms. Let's say 14 -11 = 3 Hence, d = 3
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
And yes, it's same for all.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ook.
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
This is a lifetime formula. Will help you in college too. lol.
anonymous
  • anonymous
let me try no.1

saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Haha. :/
anonymous
  • anonymous
:S do i write what i typed down?
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Write it this way: T_n = a + (n-1)d = 10 + (n-1)8 = 10 + 8n - 8 = 8n + 2 Next, insert 70 in place of n.
anonymous
  • anonymous
what does t mean?
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
it's just a short form of writing term. just like hmp is the short form of @helpmeplz311

saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
lol. Okay. So for "nth" term, there's a formula. T = a + (n-1)d Where a is the first term. n is the term you have to find. And d is the common difference. You have to learn this formula. If you're through till here then i'll move forward.

anonymous
  • anonymous

  • anonymous
yes there is but i did them w/ user @JamesWolf Im lretty sure they are right..
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
o yea like 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
saifoo, he was struggling to get why we use (n-1) instead of n, so i just let him use n, and told him to call it the 0th term instead of 1st
anonymous
  • anonymous
so if you can explain it .....
anonymous
  • anonymous
:)
anonymous
  • anonymous
because i failed
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
0th term.. will give us the first term. o_O
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
No wait. it will give us Zero.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so for the sequence 5,8,11,14 T_n = 5 + (n-1)3
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Yup^
anonymous
  • anonymous
what does T_n mean???
anonymous
  • anonymous
but n-1 was confusing so i said to just use n, and let the 1st term "5" be the 0th term
anonymous
  • anonymous
so T_n = 5 + (0)3
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
\[\Large T_n = \text{Short for Term Number}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh.
anonymous
  • anonymous

no, dont do it helpme! you just have to understand it. give a student the answer, and they can get the question right, give a student the method, and they can solve all the questions!
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
What do you mean by if you dont have a rule? you have to make a rule of your own.
anonymous
  • anonymous
