The development studio behind the newest video game, Super Ostrich Racers, needs your help. Super Ostrich Racers is an exciting, fastpaced adventure game where your ostrich runs through 20 different levels while collecting coins. They need you to develop the number of coins and points for each level and provide data for the programming team.
Create the data to fill in the tables below. The Coins table must be an arithmetic sequence and the Points table must be a geometric sequence. The common difference or ratio cannot equal 1 or 0.
Provide reasons and justification of how you know the Co

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Create the data to fill in the tables below. The Coins table must be an arithmetic sequence and the Points table must be a geometric sequence. The common difference or ratio cannot equal 1 or 0. Provide reasons and justification of how you know the Coins sequence you created is arithmetic and how you know the Points sequence is geometric. Level Coins 1 2 3 Level Points 1 2 3 Planning is crucial in the early stages of this project. Demonstrate how a recursive process will allow you to find the number of coins and points on all levels up to level 5. The development team has asked you to jump ahead of them in the project. Create the sequence formulas, an, for the coins and the points based on the level in the game. Then describe how the formula can be used to find the coins and values on level 15. Use complete sentences. If the game only has 20 levels, explain how to find the value of the series for the coins and the points. Use complete sentences and arrive at final values. The programming team needs to understand the parameters for the game, in order to start coding it. Explain any restrictions to the domain and range of your sequences

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lets fix the mistakes in parts 13 first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In part 1, below highlighted word should be "difference" right ? because "ratio" for an arithmetic sequence makes no sense dw:1439525121495:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Is part 2 all correct?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If the game only has 20 levels, explain how to find the value of the series for the coins and the points. Use complete sentences and arrive at final values.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1remember, the word `series` refers to `sum`

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so basically you need to find the sum of first 20 terms

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1look up your notes for "sum" formulas of arithmetic series and geometric series

mmend98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do i use this formula ?

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there is another formula, look it up

mmend98
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1haha which one do i use. do i use the same formula for question 3?

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for arithmetic series, it should look something like below : \[S_n = \dfrac{n}{2}[2a+(n1)d]\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ahh how do i put my numbers into this

mmend98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if u don't mind putting them in i will calculate

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you know that exactly are we finding here ?

mmend98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we are trying to find the value of the series for the coins and the point

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we want to find below sum : \[3+6+9+\cdots (\text{upto 20 terms})\]

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1whats the first term ?

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1whats the common difference ?

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how many terms are there in the sum ?

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so \(n=20\) plug them in the formula, the formula gives you the sum

mmend98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok let me calculate real quick

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[S_n = \dfrac{n}{2}[2a+(n1)d]\] \[S_{20} = \dfrac{20}{2}[2*3+(201)*3]\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[S_n = \dfrac{n}{2}[2a+(n1)d]\] \[S_{20} = \dfrac{20}{2}[2*3+(201)*3]\] wolfram says that evaluates to 630 http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=+%5Cdfrac%7B20%7D%7B2%7D%5B2*3%2B%28201%29*3%5D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i am sorry for my slowness i just really am trying to get this done

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope, use this : \[S_n = a_1\dfrac{r^n1}{r1}\] where \(a_1\) = first term \(r\) = common ratio \(n\) = number of terms

mmend98
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay so how would i plug this in

mmend98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The programming team needs to understand the parameters for the game, in order to start coding it. Explain any restrictions to the domain and range of your sequences.

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for restrictions on domain, look at first column dw:1439528857139:dw

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what numbers are allowed in that column ?

mmend98
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so how would i express that as my answer

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1domain is all the "inputs" that are allowed for the function to eat so whats the domain in our problem ?

mmend98
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the domain is 1,23,..?

mmend98
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There would be no restriction on the range. The domain for the points would be andy integer that is greater than or equal to 1, like 1,2,3,4,5,..etc.

mmend98
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1would this work for my answer ? @ganeshie8

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Looks good! the domain is all positive integers : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,...

mmend98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay we are finished ! There would be no restriction on the range. The domain for the points would be any positive integer that is greater than or equal to 1, like 1,2,3,4,5,..etc.

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there are rstrictions on range too

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1restrctions for range of arithmetic sequence : dw:1439529300043:dw

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1range is also positive integers, for arithmetic sequences the range is only the multiples of 3 for geometric sequence the range is only the powers of 2
