Nth number in an arithmetic series equals 'a + nd', where 'a' is the first number, 'n' signifies the Nth number and d is the amount by which each term in the series is incremented. For the 5th term it would be a + 5d

It appears that a number of -79 is missing in the sequence and so if you meant -58 -65 -72 -79 -86 then the nth term is -7n-51 which makes 6th term in the sequence -93

How do you use a arithmetic sequence to find the nth term?

The difference between successive terms in an arithmetic sequence is a constant. Denote this by r. Suppose the first term is a. Then the nth term, of the sequence is given by t(n) = (a-r) + n*r or a + (n-1)*r

How do you find the perimeter of each iteration of a tessellation?

You need to find the perimeter at the first few iterations and find out what the sequence is. It could be an arithmetic sequence or a polynomial of a higher degree: you need to find out the generating polynomial. Then substitute the iteration number in place of the variable in this polynomial.

What is an nth term in an arithmetic sequence?

The nth term is referring to any term in the arithmetic sequence. You would figure out the formula an = a1+(n-1)d-10where an is your y-value, a1 is your first term in a number sequence (your x-value), n is the term you're trying to find, and d is the amount you're increasing by.

Find the 30th term of the following sequence 1 7 13 19?

This is an arithmetic sequence with the first term t1 = 1, and the common difference d = 6. So we can use the formula of finding the nth term of an arithmetic sequence, tn = t1 + (n - 1)d, to find the required 30th term. tn = t1 + (n - 1)d t30 = 1 + (30 - 1)6 = 175

How do you find the first four term of an arithmetic sequence?

You need an equation for the nth term of the sequence, or some other means of identifying the sequence. In general, they will be a+n, a+2n, a+3n and a+4n although some go for a, a+n, a+2n and a+3n.

How do you find the nth term in an arithmetic sequence?

tn = a + (n - 1)d where a is the first term and d is the difference between each term.
