Pick \(\large X_o=1 \) , that seems easiest.

ohk thnks it looks option d is the correct one.

The the first three values are \[\Large{ X_o = 1 \\ \\X_1 = (-2)^1\cdot X_0= -2 \cdot 1 = -2 \\X_2 = (-2)^2\cdot X_1 = (-2)^2 \cdot (-2)= -8 \\X_3 = (-2)^3\cdot X_2 = (-8)(-8)=64 \\ X_4 = (-2)^4 \cdot X_3 = 16 \cdot 64 = 1024 } \]

I agree

Do you mean series or sequence?

do you mean partial sum or term?

nth element of a series does not make sense...
perl
  • perl
@zzr0ck3r How about the nth term of the series?
perl
  • perl
for example 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + ... 1 is the first term 2 is the second term 3 is the third term. etc It would just be easier to say the nth term of the sequence whose terms are come from a series.

yes for sure "term" makes sense, but as the question was phrased I was not sure if they were asking about the nth element in the sequence of partial sums of the series or just the nth element in the sequence.

I don't think she meant partial sum

right I think I should have read first :)

agreed, it was ambiguous :)
