What will be the expression for the n'th term of an arithmetic sequenceHi,

I would appreciate some help on this problem. How would I find the “nth” term when I have its given value?

View attachment 29859

when the first term is 'u_{1}' and the common difference is 'd'?

Putting aside the particular assignment, let us derive aWhat will be the expression for the n'th term of an arithmetic sequence

5th term = u1 + 4*d = u1 + (5-1)*d

6th term = u1 + 5*d = u1 + (6-1)*d

6th term = u1 + 5*d = u1 + (6-1)*d

Correct ...... now what will be the expression for the 'n' th term of the AP?5th term = u1 + 4*d = u1 + (5-1)*d

6th term = u1 + 5*d = u1 + (6-1)*d

I don’t understand what you mean. Do you mean like n = u1 + (n – 1)d ?

Yes, jaegermeister, but the right-hand side above represents the nth term (symbol uI don’t understand what you mean. Do you mean like n = u1 + (n – 1)d ?

u

You've been given values for the nth term u
