Part 1: Create a scenario for an arithmetic sequence. For example, Jasmine practices the piano for ______ minutes on Monday. Every day she ___________ her practice time by _________. If she continues this pattern, how many minutes will she practice on the 7th day? Be sure to fill in the blanks with the words that will create an arithmetic sequence. Use your scenario to write the function for the 7th term in your sequence using sequence notation.
I need help learning how to solve this problem I don't get it just step by step on how

The first thing you have to do is pick numbers for the blanks.

- anonymous

@peachpi do I just pick any numbers

- anonymous

yes and for the 2nd blank decide whether you want it to increase or decrease

Ok so if I say she practices piano for 10 on Monday and increases by 5 min everyday

- anonymous

ok. so now you can write the formula for the sequence.
\[a_n=a_1+d(n-1)\]
\(a_1\)=10 because that was how much she practiced on the first day
d = 5 because that's how much it increases each day.
Plug them in to get the formula for you specific numbers

- anonymous

did you get a formula?

- anonymous

No how do I plug it in

- anonymous

Oh never mind I see I'll write it down

- anonymous

So an stays blank

- anonymous

right. both an & n don't change for this step

- anonymous

Ok I got an=15+5n

- anonymous

So or idk how to write the a and the n the way u did my bad

- anonymous

an = a1 + d(n-1)
an = 10 + 5(n - 1)
an = 10 + 5n - 5
an = 5n + 5
I think you may have added wrong somewhere

- anonymous

Now for the last step you plug in 7 for n to find \(a_7\).
\[a_7=5(7)+5\]

- anonymous

I added the 5 to the 10

- anonymous

ok. That was it. It was supposed to be -5 added to the 10

- anonymous

So would it be 15 + 5n or no

- anonymous

It's 5 + 5n

- anonymous

Ok I got a7=40

- anonymous

that's right :)

- anonymous

Wait so that's it

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

Omg thank you so much could you help me with another if you can it's the same but with a geometric sequence

- anonymous

yeah. just post another question and tag me
