    the numbers are increasing by 4 each time so its an arithmetic sequence with common difference 4

    imagine points on a line (0,14) (1,18) (2,22) (3,26) (4,30) and imagine you had to write the equation for this line...can you write the equation for this line?

    the general formula for the nth term is a + (n - 1)d where a = first term and d = common difference so plug in a = 14 and d = 4 and simplify to get one of the options
