    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
