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.

It is: nth term = 35-9n

At least two or more numbers are needed to work out the nth term

(n^2+n)/2

They are: nth term = 6n-4 and the 14th term is 80
