## anonymous one year ago the explicit formula a[n]=a[1]+(n-1)*d to find the 500th term of the sequence below 24,31,38,45,52

1. anonymous

you need a couple numbers first what is $$a_1$$?

2. anonymous

i think a[1] is the first term which is 24 or it's the common difference which is 7

3. anonymous

yes and yes

4. anonymous

so $$a_1=24, d=7, n=500$$ plug them in to $a_1+(n-1)\times d$for your answer

5. anonymous

so it would be 24+(500-1)*7 and that give me a value of 3517
