    The first term is f(1), that's 10. f(n + 1) = f(n) – 2 means you subtract 2 to get the next term

    f(n + 1) = f(n) – 2 for f(1) = 10 try to learn how to interpret this First, f(1) is short for "the first term" (that is what the 1 in f(1) means) so the first term in your answer should be a 10

    Can you learn that f(1) = some number that will be the first number in a list?
