"Non-linear sequence" is a generic term for just about ANY sequence, each of which will have a different equation.
If the sequence is non-linear, you need to establish how it is defined.
No, it is not even an equation - just a single term!No, it is not even an equation - just a single term!No, it is not even an equation - just a single term!No, it is not even an equation - just a single term!
From what I know, it is just called "next term in sequence" For a unknown term, just call it the "nth term".
an equation that shows how to calculate the value of the next term in a sequence from the value of the current term
Any iterative sequence.
The nth term of an arithmetic sequence = a + [(n - 1) X d]
To find the equation of a sequence, you first have to look at the differences between the numbers. In this case the differences are 4, and 4. Thus the equation begins 4n. The sequence minus 4n is: 3, 3, 3 Thus the equation in its entirety is that the value of the term in position n is 4n+3
To work out the equation of a sequence, you should first look at the differences in the sequence. In this case, the differences between the numbers are -2, -2, -2. Thus the equation for the sequence is x-2n To work out x, you need to find what the "0th term" would be, or the term that would come before 4. In this case, it would be 4+2=6. Therefore, the equation for the nth term is 6-2n
If the Fibonacci sequence is denoted by F(n), where n is the first term in the sequence then the following equation obtains for n = 0.
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.
first you need to write your equation. This is an exponential function so the equation would be- A(N)=a(b)^n-1 where a is the first term in the sequence (for you a=-14) b is the common ratio (for you b=1/2) and n= the number of term in your sequence (for you n=5, but it can be any number you want to find the nth sequence of.) Now take the equation a(n)=a(b)^n-1 and plug in your variables- Now your equation is a(5)=-14(1/2)^5-1 The first step to solving this is simplifying your exponent- so subtract 1 from five then your equation would read a(5)=-14(1/2)^4 Now solve the exponent then you would have a(5)=-14(1/16) then all you have to do is multiply a(5)=-7/8 So the fifth term in your sequence is -7/8 I hope this helped. :)
No, it will be a formula, because "the nth term" means that you have not defined exactly which term it is. So, you make a formula which works for ANY term in the sequence.
Since the term nonlinear equation is used to describe equations that are graphed in the form of a curving line rather than a straight line, and such curves require exponents (i.e., x squared etc.) y = 0 would appear to be a linear equation. The term would be slightly misleading in this case, since it would not be graphed as a line, but just as a point, however, it has no exponent and produces no curved lines, so it's linear.
It means to work out a suitable nth term that is applicable to all terms of a sequence of numbers following a regular pattern.
In order to find the unknown term in a number sequence, you first need to calaculate the advantage of the numbers.
Find the generating equation for the sequence and then substitute the values 5, 6 and 7 (respectively) for the counter - which is usually n.
Which of the following equations could be used to solve for the tenth term of the following sequence?15, 13, 11, 9, ...
Start out by finding the expression that describes the sequence. This is often in the form an + b. Example: Find the 20th term in the following sequence: 3 7 11 ... It appears that 4 is being added to the previous term to make the next term. However, instead of starting at 4, the sequence started at 3. The expression is: 4n - 1 Plug in the 20 to replace n, to give: 4*20 - 1= 79 Answer: The 20th term in the sequence is 79.
Nonlinear means something is not in a line. It is a term commonly used in math, meaning two or more equations are not on the same line.
N= term number, your equation would be: 2N+2
It is a set of values for the variable or variables in the equation such that, when those values are put into the equation, the resulting mathematical statement is true. The term can also refer to the process of finding a solution.
The general (or nth) term is given by the equation t(n) = a + (n-1)d where a is the first term and d is the common difference between successive terms.
a + (n-1)d = last number where a is the first number d is the common difference.
