Write a recursive formula for the sequence 7, 4, 1, –2, –5, .... Then find the next term. (1 point)
an = an–1 – 3, where a1 = –8; 7
an = an–1 – 3, where a1 = 7; –8
an = an–1 + 3, where a1 = –3; 22
an = an–1 + 3, where a1 = 7; –8

are the terms in the sequence getting bigger or smaller?

then that should help us pinpoint a solution: we need it to start at 7 and have a next value smaller than 5

im sure option B gave us 7;3 when i first read it. but in any case we are still starting at 7, and getting progressively smaller each time ... meaning we are subtracting from the previous term

lets start at 7 7 the next terms is 7  3 right? 4 the next term is 4  3 right? 1 the next term is 1  3 right? 2 etc ....

these old eyes of mine can be tricky, but it does appear the B matches the setup correctly
