### What is the nth term for 1 5 9 13 17?

This is an Arithmetic Series/Sequence. In general the nth term, A(n) = a + (n - 1)d....where a is the 1st term and d is the common difference. In this question, the 1st term equals 1 and the common difference is 4. Then the nth term, A(n) = 1 + (n - 1) x 4 = 1 + 4n - 4 = 4n - 3.

### What is the nth term of the sequence 3 -1 -5 -9 -13 -17?

If you notice, there is a common difference between the terms: tn - tn-1 = -4 So the nth term is: tn = tn-1 - 4 For this recursive sequence to be defined though, you need something to start with as your tn-1. So start with t1= 3 and you're done.

### What is the nth term for 3 10 17 24 31?

You can see that all the numbers go up by 7. This means that the first part of the nth term rule for this sequence is 7n. Now, you have to find out how to get from 7 to 3, 14 to 10, 21 to 17 ... this is because we are going up in the 7 times table. To get from the seventh times table to the sequence, you take away four. So the… Read More

### What is the nth term of the sequence 5 10 17 28 47 82?

### What is the nth term for 5 11 17 23 29?

35 * * * * * That is the next term. The question, however, is about the nth term. And that is 6*n - 1

### What is the nth term for the sequence 7 12 17?

It seems that the term increases 5 at a time, so (if this tendency continues) it's quite clear that the sequence is of the form 5n+k, for some constant "k". With a little experimentation, you can find that "k" should be 2.

### What is the 50 term for 2 7 12 17?

The sequence goes up by 5 each time; the first term is two. So the nth term is 2 + 5n. n=50 => 2+50*5 = 252.

### What is the nth term for 2 5 10 17 26 37?

One method is an = n2 +1. So the first term is 1+1 the second is 22 +1=5 the third is 32 +1=10 the fourth is 16+1=17 etc. There is also a recursive way to find it. I only point it out so you can see there may be more than one way to denote the nth term in a sequence. This method uses recursion. 2+0=2=a1 2+3=5=a2 5+5=10 =a3 10+7=17 =a4 17+9=26 =a5 26+11=37 =a6… Read More

### Number sequence 1 2 5 10 what 2 numbers are next and why?

We can work out the next two numbers by getting the nth term. To do this find the difference detween each of the terms (1,2,5,etc...): (differences in subscript) 1 1 2 3 5 5 10 We see that the differences at the first level are not the same; so we do it again, but for the differences, not the terms: 1 2 3 2 5 Now the differences are the same. This tells us that… Read More

### What is the term in sequence -13-9-5-1?

There are infinitely many possible answers. The simplest, linear, rule is Un = 4n - 17 for n = 1, 2, 3, ...

### What is the sequence 2 9 5 13 10 19 17?

Look at the differences bettween the terms: 9-2=7, 5-9=-4, 13-5=8, 10-13=-3 The differences finally are: 7,-4,8-3,9,-2. The next difference must be 10, so the next term is 27(27-17=10) and the next difference must be -1, so the next term must be 26 (26-27=-1). Finally, the sequence is: 2 9 5 13 10 19 17 27 26 and so on.
