Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0an = 8 − 5(n − 1); all integers where n ≥ 1 an = 8 − 5(n − 1); all integers where n ≥ 0 an = 8 − 3(n − 1); all integers where n ≥ 1 an = 8 − 3(n − 1); all integers where n ≥ 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Good. Throw out the two that say "5".

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3That's right. Throw those out. The common difference is 3. A formula with "5" can't do that. Scratch them out and never look at them again. Focus on the ones with "3".
