## anonymous one year ago The explicit formula for the nth term of an arithmetic sequence is an = a1 + (n - 1) • d. What is the simple formula corresponding to the explicit formula if the first term of the sequence is -10 and the difference between terms in the sequence is 4? A. 4n + 14 B. 4n - 6 C. 4n + 10 D. 4n - 10 E. 4n - 14

1. myininaya

did you try enter in the information into the form given above

2. myininaya

that is you are given a1 and d

3. myininaya

just plug them in

4. myininaya

$a_n=a_1+(n-1)d \\ \text{ you are given } d=4 \text{ and } a_1=-10$

5. myininaya

plug in and simplify

thx
