5, 13, 21, 29, 37... difference between each term = 8, 8, 8, 8... i think i see the pattern ;)
so... can you do the rest from here?
so what would i say
u tell me... they want u to use words (not numbers) to explain the pattern... including the starting term
there are 2 types of sequences: arithmetic with a common difference and geometric with a common ratio
so how do u think u should explain it?
i have noo clue
k... what's the first term?
read again what jack1 wrote originally
yep, perfect so something like "the sequence starts at 5..." then... what's the pattern/sequence?
it goes up by 8
perfect, so "the sequence begins at 5... then increases by 8... with each new term"
ok thank you sooo much
all good now part b what are the next 3 terms in the sequence (after 37?)
37+ 8 =?
close there's a typo
what do you mean
37+8 is actually 45
it's ok :) so we got one term... two more terms to go and since we are increasing by 8 all the time we solve 45+8 = ?
yup... one more term 53+8 = ?
5, 13, 21, 29, 37... 1st term = 5 2nd term = 5 + 8 = 13 3rd term = 5 + 8 + 8 = 21 4th term = 5 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 29 5th term = 5 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 37 6th term = ??? 7th term = ??? 8th term = ???
yes... so our 3 terms are 45, 53, 61
6th term = 5+8+8+8+8+8 = 45 7th term = 5+8+8+8+8+8+ 8 = 53 8th term = 5+8+8+8+8+8+ 8 + 8 =61
so that's about it for this part.
ok so what do i write for my final answer
Our sequence is increasing by 8 and by following that pattern, we retrieve the next three terms which is 45,53, and 61
ok thank you for your help
