Write the sum using summation notation, assuming the suggested pattern continues. -4 + 5 + 14 + 23 + ... + 131 and the answer was \[\sum_{n=0}^{15}9n-4\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
anything to the power of 0 is 1!
anonymous
  • anonymous
and the first term was -4
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah I wrote it in that way
anonymous
  • anonymous
there are more ways to write it
anonymous
  • anonymous
I hope you see it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
It depends on if it is finite or infinite
anonymous
  • anonymous
for example I could have written \[\sum_{n=1}^{15}9(n-1)-4\]
