so what would i say
Jack1
  • Jack1
u tell me... they want u to use words (not numbers) to explain the pattern... including the starting term

  • triciaal
there are 2 types of sequences: arithmetic with a common difference and geometric with a common ratio
anonymous
  • anonymous
umm
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
Jack1
  • Jack1
so how do u think u should explain it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i have noo clue
Jack1

triciaal
  • triciaal
read again what jack1 wrote originally
anonymous

5 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
8
Jack1
  • Jack1
yep, perfect so something like "the sequence starts at 5..." then... what's the pattern/sequence?
anonymous
  • anonymous
8
anonymous
  • anonymous
it goes up by 8
Jack1
  • Jack1
perfect, so "the sequence begins at 5... then increases by 8... with each new term"
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok thank you sooo much
Jack1
  • Jack1
all good now part b what are the next 3 terms in the sequence (after 37?)
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
37+ 8 =?
Jack1
  • Jack1
no... srsly... what are the next 3 terms? @lauren.ascough
anonymous
  • anonymous
um
anonymous
  • anonymous
37 + 8 = 46 @UsukiDoll
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
close there's a typo
anonymous
  • anonymous
what do you mean
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
37+8 is actually 45
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok sorry
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
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 = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
45+8=53
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
yup... one more term 53+8 = ?
Jack1
  • Jack1
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 = ???
anonymous
  • anonymous
53+8=61
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
yes... so our 3 terms are 45, 53, 61
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
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
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
so that's about it for this part.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so what do i write for my final answer
UsukiDoll
  • UsukiDoll
Our sequence is increasing by 8 and by following that pattern, we retrieve the next three terms which is 45,53, and 61
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok thank you for your help
