Q. Which formula gives the general term for the sequence of positive odd numbers if we start the sequence at n = 0?

an = 2n + 1
an = 2n – 1
an = 2(n + 1)
an = 2(n – 1)
Q. Find the formula for the general term of the sequence

0, -10, 20, -30, 40, -50

an = 10(n – 1)
an = (-1)n – 110(n – 1)
an = (-1)n10n
an = (-1)n + 110n
Q. Give the formula for the general term of the sequence

starting with n = 1.

Q. Which of the following descriptions produce the sequence of natural numbers

1, 2, 3, 4,... ?

(I) an = n starting at n = 1
(II) an = n – 1 starting at n = 1
(III) an = n starting at n = 0
(IV) an = (n + 1) starting at n = 0

Q. Find the general term of the sequence

0.5, 2, 4.5, 8, 12.5, ...

starting with n = 1.

an = 1.5n – 1
Q. Which description produces the sequence 0,6,24,60,... ?

an = 6n2 starting at n = 0
an = 6n2 starting at n = 1
an = n3 n starting at n = 0
an = n3 n starting at n = 1
Q. Find the general term for the sequence

starting with n = 1.
