Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1essentially, the difference between your answer and the textbook answer is that yours divides each consecutive term by 1 and the other answer multiplies each consecutive term by 1, which produces the same sequence an = (1)^(n+1) = (1)^n * (1)^1, using our exponent rules
