I suspect that the first term should be "negative 3", ie the sequence is -3, 1, 5, 9, 13, 17, ... The nth term is 4n - 7

n+4

The nth term is 4n - 3

2n+5

This is an Arithmetic Series/Sequence. In general the nth term, A(n) = a + (n - 1)d....where a is the 1st term and d is the common difference. In this question, the 1st term equals 1 and the common difference is 4. Then the nth term, A(n) = 1 + (n - 1) x 4 = 1 + 4n - 4 = 4n - 3.

The nth term is 4n - 3

The nth term is 25-4n and so the next term will be 5

It is 4n+5 and so the next term will be 25

2n+5

(13*17-5)/9 = 24

27 There are two interwoven series. A) 2,5,10,17 2 + 3 = 5 : 5 + 5 = 10 : 10 + 7 = 17 Each term takes the previous term and adds increasing odd numbers starting with 3. B) 9,13,19....and then 27 9 + 4 = 13 : 13 + 6 = 19 : 19 + 8 = 27 Each term takes the previous term and adds increasing even numbers starting with 4.
