                                                             Problem:                   Find the third term of the sequence: an = 6n- 13

                                                             Solution                    (n) is a natural number; replace (n) with the number of the term

                           Step 1:  


                                                                                Solution                          a3 = 6 x 3 13

 Step 2:                        


                                                            Solution                          a3 = 5

                                                             Step 3:


 Solution                    The answer is:  a3 = 5

 Step 4:                                                                      




                                                             Try two practice problems:  


                                                                                               Solve the following:



Find the tenth term of the sequence: an=15n-25


Write the first three terms of the sequence: an=8n-6
