a (sub n) = 11 + (n - 1) x d

5, 8, 11, 14 and 17.

It is: nth term = 35-9n

Term-to-term is -3

t(n) = 6*n - 1 where n = 1, 2, 3, ...

It is: 3n+2

3n - 1

The nth term is 3n+2 and so the next number will be 17

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

a (sub n) = 11 + (n - 1) x d

20 - (3 * (n - 1))

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

5, 8, 11, 14 and 17.

It is: 2n+9

The nth term is: 2n+7 and so the next number will be 19

2n+5

This appears to be a declining arithmetic series. If it is, the next term is 5, because each term is 3 less than the preceding term.=================================The 'N'th term is: [ 23 - 3N ].
