The (n)th term = the (n - 1)th term + (2n + 1)

nth term = 5 +8n

9n+2

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

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

Un = 29 - 9n

The nth term is -7n+29 and so the next term will be -6

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

It is: nth term = 29-7n

The nth term of the sequence -4 4 12 20 29 is 8n+12 because each time the sequence is adding 8 which is where the 8n comes from. Then you take 8 away from -4 and because a - and - equal a + the answer is 12. Which is where the 12 comes from. Hope I helped.

It is increasing by 4 and the nth term is 4n+1

2n +29
