The domain of any arithmetic or geometric sequence is \(\Large n > 0\) or \(\Large n \ge 1\) where n is an integer. The reason why is because n is a counting number which indexes the terms n = 1 refers to the first term n = 2 to the second term n = 3 is the third term etc

then that narrows it down to b or d

So then, the answer would be B. Right?

it's NOT b because \(\Large n \ge 0\) includes n = 0 but we don't start with n = 0. We start with n = 1

Oh so 0 isn't a natural #?

natural numbers = counting numbers counting numbers = 1,2,3,4,...

Oh! Yeah that's true! You dont start w/ ero when you count:)

yeah and when you say "first term" it's natural to think of 1 as the first thing if you made 0 first, then 1 would be second. That's a bit confusing

Hm I didn't think of it like that! But yeah, that's true
