    The terms are decreasing by 4 as the term position goes up. Do you agree? |dw:1443820971295:dw|

    We need to start at -34 and ADD 4 to get the 9th term. We will add 4s and go backwards and count to the first term. |dw:1443821119010:dw|

    Click on the pencil icon and fill in the values of each term beginning with term 7 all the way back to term 1. You will be adding 4 each time. Fill those in and then post and let's see what happens, okay?

    Can you give an idea of how to do it?

    Start with -26 and add 4. Think of it as your owing me $26 and then giving me $4 to pay on the debt. If you did that how much would you still owe me?

    I think I messed up on the numbers order.

    No. The 7th term is -26 + 4 = -22. The 6th term would then be -22 + 4 = -18 See if you can get the 5th term on down to the first term. |dw:1443821852902:dw|
