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

Write your answer...

6n-5 is the nth term of this sequence

3n - 7

The nth term is 2n+5 and so the next number is 17

It is Un = 3n - 7.

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

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

Un = 4n - 13.

You can't figure out the rule for a sequence from a single number.

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

The nth term of an arithmetic sequence = a + [(n - 1) X d]

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.

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

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.

In the study of sequences, given a number n, the position to term rule tells you how the nth term of the sequence is calculated.

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

The nth term of the sequence is 2n + 1.

the first 4 terms of the sequence which has the nth term is a sequence of numbers that that goe together eg. 8,12,16,20,24 the nth term would be 4n+4

The nth term is (36 - 4n)

While there are not enough numbers to fully clarify the nth term of the sequence, according to the sequence so far it appears that the nth term is equal to n4. Therefore, the next number will equal 44 = 256

A single number, such as -3052 cannot define a sequence and, without a sequence you cannot have an nth term.

Each number in this sequence is twice the previous number. The nth. term is 2n-1.Each number in this sequence is twice the previous number. The nth. term is 2n-1.Each number in this sequence is twice the previous number. The nth. term is 2n-1.Each number in this sequence is twice the previous number. The nth. term is 2n-1.

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

As given, the sequence is too short to establish the generating rule. If the second term was 19 and NOT 29, then the nth term is tn = 6*n + 7 or 6(n+1)+1

The nth term in this sequence is 4n + 3.
