Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it'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 = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.35, 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 = ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.16th 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Our sequence is increasing by 8 and by following that pattern, we retrieve the next three terms which is 45,53, and 61
