Whether the sequence is increasing or decreasing makes no difference. The only difference is that the common difference d will be a negative number.

How do you find the nth term of a nonlinear sequence?

If the sequence is non-linear, you need to establish how it is defined.


How do you find the nth term of decreasing linear sequence?

The answer depends on what information you have. If you know the first number, a, and the common difference d, (where d is negative), then the nth term is a + (n - 1)*d : exactly the same as in an increasing linear sequence. The only difference is that d is negative instead of positive.


How do you find the nth term of a declining sequence?

It depends on how the sequence is defined. Whether it is increasing, decreasing, oscillating or whatever is not relevant.


What is called when you find the number by adding the same number to the previous term?

It is a sequence of numbers which is called an arithmetic, or linear, sequence.


What is the nth term rule if the linear sequence 1,7,13,19,25?

6n-5 is the nth term of this sequence


How do you work out the first term in a linear sequence?

no


What is Nth term of a non linear sequence?

It is not possible to answer the question since a non linear sequence could be geometric, exponential, trigonometric etc.


What sequence is formed by subtracting each term of a sequence from the next term?

It is the sequence of first differences. If these are all the same (but not 0), then the original sequence is a linear arithmetic sequence. That is, a sequence whose nth term is of the form t(n) = an + b


Can you explain a pattern in which 14 is the fifth term in a sequence of ten numbers?

It is not possible to explain because you have not specified the nature of the sequence. A sequence can be an arithmetic, or geometric progression, increasing or decreasing. Or it can be a polynomial or power progression, again increasing or decreasing. Or it can be a sequence of random numbers.


What is the equation for finding the nth term of a nonlinear sequence?

There is no set equation for finding the nth term of a non- linear sequence. You have to go through a procedure to find the equation suitable for your given sequence. You would have to post the equation itself or re phrase your question for the answer.


What Find the 90th term of the arithmetic sequence 16,21,26?

The 90th term of the arithmetic sequence is 461


What is formed by multuiplying a term in a sequence by fixed number to find the next term?

what term is formed by multiplying a term in a sequence by a fixed number to find the next term


Is there any equation to help finding the nth term of a nonlinear esquence?

"Non-linear sequence" is a generic term for just about ANY sequence, each of which will have a different equation.


What is the 30th term of the linear sequence -5 -2 1 4 7 ...?

82


Which term describes a function in which the y-values form an arithmetic sequence?

linear function


How do you find the 100th term of the sequence?

a + 99d where 'a' is the first term of the sequence and 'd' is the common difference.


What is the nth term rule of the linear sequence -4 -1 2 5 8?

3n - 7


What is the sum of first six terms of a sequence whose nth term is 8 - n?

nth term is 8 - n. an = 8 - n, so the sequence is {7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2,...} (this is a decreasing sequence since the successor term is smaller than the nth term). So, the sum of first six terms of the sequence is 27.


How do you find the next 50nth term in a sequence?

you must find the pattern of the sequence in order to find the next 50 terms using that pattern and the first part of the sequence given


What number comes next in the sequence -1 0 1 8?

You cant solve the next term (next number) in this sequence. You need more terms, because this is either a "quadratic sequence", or a "linear and quadratic sequence", and you need more terms than this to solve a "linear and quadratic sequence" and for this particular "quadratic sequence" you would need more terms to solve nth term, which would solve what the next number is. If this is homework, check with your teacher if he wrote the wrong sum.


What is the nth term rule of the linear sequence -4 -1 2 5 8 ...?

It is Un = 3n - 7.


What is zero sequence impedence?

Zero sequence impedance indicates a homopolar symmetrical component. It is a term used in electrical engineering within a three-phase system of linear combinations.


What is the nth term rule of the linear sequence 5 8 11 14 17 . . .?

The nth term is: 3n+2 and so the next number will be 20


How do you find the 50th term in a number sequence?

You first have to figure out some rule for the sequence. This can be quite tricky.


How do you work out the nth term of a sequence?
