Q:
# Write a recursive formula for the sequence 7, 4, 1, –2, –5, .... Then find the next term. (1 point) an = an–1 – 3, where a1 = –8; 7 an = an–1 – 3, where a1 = 7; –8 an = an–1 + 3, where a1 = –3; 22 an = an–1 + 3, where a1 = 7; –8

Accepted Solution

A:

4 = 7 - 3

1 = 4 - 3

-2 = 1 - 3

-5 = -2 - 3

=> An = A (n-1) - 3, where A1 = 7

The next term is A6 = A5 - 3 = - 5 - 3 = - 8

So the answer is the fourth option.

1 = 4 - 3

-2 = 1 - 3

-5 = -2 - 3

=> An = A (n-1) - 3, where A1 = 7

The next term is A6 = A5 - 3 = - 5 - 3 = - 8

So the answer is the fourth option.
