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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then that narrows it down to two options right? what more can we gather from it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2are the terms in the sequence getting bigger or smaller?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then that should help us pinpoint a solution: we need it to start at 7 and have a next value smaller than 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2im 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2lets 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 ....
