    First term is -3, common difference is 0-(-3) = 3 So, the sequence is \[a_n = -3+3(n-1)\]

    You need to find sum from the fifth term to the eighth term, so, find a5, a6, a7, a8 and add them together.

    \[a_5 = -3+3(5-1)\]\[a_6 = -3+3(6-1)\]\[a_7 = -3+3(7-1)\]... Then, find \(a_5+a_6+a_7+a_8\)
