hmm doesn't look like a sequence to me for one
can you post a quick screenshot of the material? so we can see what you mean
Nope, it's a series

hmm ok
So we can use sum of an arithmetic series equation I guess which is \[S_n = \frac{ n }{ 2 }[2a+(n-a)d]\] a = first term in series, d = common difference
n is what you're looking for in this case n = 11
So what's the common difference, look at your previous post what I wrote when you left
So I'll post it again for reference, the common difference is \[t_2-t_1=t_3-t_2\]
I'm really confused right now..
I would say so you jumped from a sequence from your last question to a series here, so just focus on the equation for now. The t here represents the term and the subscript is the address of the term, so \[t_1 = 3~~~t_2 = 1\] etc
Common difference can be worked out by subtracting the first term from the second
\[t_2-t_1 = t_3-t_2 \implies 1-3 = -1-1 \implies -2 = -2 \checkmark\] so it works out, our common difference d = -2
With me so far?
yes!
i'm just writing everything down in my notebook!
Ok cool :) Well now lets find a, what is a?
is already one of the terms given, or do I have to find it?
a = first term in series
A not already sorry
so its 3
Good!
So we now have d = -2, a = 3, n = 11
Now we can use the equation I mentioned above \[S_n = \frac{ n }{ 2 }[2a+(n-a)d]\] can you plug it all in now
sn=11/2 (2(3)+(11+3)-2) correct?
Close, your sign in (n-a) is off but it looks good \[S_{11} = \frac{ 11 }{ 2 }[2(3)+(11-3)(-2)]\]
i got -55 ?
Yup, that looks good
but it isn't one of the choices?
Mhm...
So is your question asking for \[S_{11}\]
yes!
So it's exactly Find S11 for 3 + 1 + (-1) + (-3) +… right
yes!
Mhm, everything looks right
Ok lets see...a = 3, d = -2, n = 11
I have located the problem it's the original equation I gave you, it should (n-1) not (n-a) sorry! \[S_n = \frac{ n }{ 2 }[2a+(n-1)d] = \frac{ 11 }{ 2 }[2(3)+(11-1)(-2)] = \]
Try now :)
So the equation is \[S_n = \frac{ n }{ 2 }[2a+(n-\color{red}1)d]\]
I got 72.8? so -73?
Nope, you must've put in wrong
\[\frac{ 11 }{ 2 }[2(3)+(11-1)(-2)] = \frac{ 11 }{ 2 }[6+10(-2)] = \frac{ 11 }{ 2 }[6-20]=\frac{ 11 }{ 2 }(-14) = -77\]
Use your order of operations :-)
