Find a formula for the general term of the sequence
1, 2, 3, 4,...
if the sequence starts at
(a) n = 1
(b) n = 0
(c) n = 194
(a) This is the easy one. The formula is an = n.
(b) Make a table so we can see the relationship between n and the term. This time, the table starts with n = 0 instead of n = 1.
The formula for the general term if we start at n = 0 is an = n + 1.
(c) Let's make a table so we can see the relationship. Start the table off at n = 194.
If we start this sequence at n = 194, the nth term is an = n – 193.
