It means to find the generic expression for any term, not just for one specific term.

For example, in the sequence 1, 4, 9, 16, 25... it should be clear that these are square numbers, which you can write as 12, 22, 32, etc. The nth. term is n2, meaning that for any number "n", term number n is n2.

How do you find the nth term?

Say if you had the pattern 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50 To find the nth term you have to see what the gap between the numbers is. In our case this is 5. Then you have to find out what the difference between the gap and the first number. In this sequence it is 10. So your answer would be..... 5n+10 That's how you find the nth term.
