If the sequence is taken to start 1,1,2,... then the 100th term is 354,224,848,179,261,915,075 And you've got to hope I have typed that in correctly!

If you mean: 34 39 24 ... then the nth term is 39-5n and so the 100th term = -461

"The recursive form is very useful when there aren't too many terms in the sequence. For instance, it would be fairly easy to find the 5th term of a sequence recursively, but the closed form might be better for the 100th term. On the other hand, finding the closed form can be very difficult, depending on the sequence. With computers or graphing calculators, the 100th term can be found quickly recursively."

ive been told u hve 2 times sumfin bii sumfin

you replace the "n" with ahundred e.g... if it's 2n+1, you will go 2x100+ 1 which is 201

Lets say the formula is 5n+6 you would times the 5 by 100 - 500, and then add on the 6! So your answer would be 506.

what term is formed by multiplying a term in a sequence by a fixed number to find the next term

The 90th term of the arithmetic sequence is 461

The difference between the numbers is increasing by 2 each time. The hundredth term of the sequence will be 10300.

It is 354,224,848,179,261,915,075.

These are most probably the triangular numbers and T100 = 100*101/2 = 5050. Of course, it is possible to find a polynomial of degree 7 (or higher) so that ANY number can be the next term, or the 100th term.

you must find the pattern of the sequence in order to find the next 50 terms using that pattern and the first part of the sequence given

If the sequence is non-linear, you need to establish how it is defined.

You first have to figure out some rule for the sequence. This can be quite tricky.

Find the formula of it.

Ok, take the formula dn+(a-d) this is just when having a sequence with a common difference dn+(a-d) when d=common difference, a=the 1st term, n=the nth term - you have the sequence 2, 4, 6, 8... and you want to find the nth term therefore: dn+(a-d) 2n+(2-2) 2n Let's assume you want to find the 5th term (in this case, the following number in the sequence) 2(5) = 10 (so the fifth term is 10)

Three or more terms of a sequence are needed in order to find its nth term.

20th term = 20*(20+1)/2

It depends on how the sequence is defined. Whether it is increasing, decreasing, oscillating or whatever is not relevant.

It is a sequence of numbers which is called an arithmetic, or linear, sequence.

From any term after the first, subtract the preceding term.
