MrOlai:
What is the formula for the nth term of the sequence:

-1, 5, 15, 29, 47, ...?
Re: What Are The Next Three Numbers In This Sequence? by DrayZee: 8:11pm On Aug 06
MrOlai:


Wrong. It isn't AP.
You're asking for the formula use to find the value of different terns in a sequence.
Sequences and Series..arithmetic progression...It's all related.

Now, gimme the answer to that question...or better still,tell me why my answer is not correct.

DrayZee:

Lol. The one above is AP na.

AP has a common difference. In the sequence -1, 5, 15, 29, 47, .... , there is no common difference there. So, it's not an AP.

Yh. I figured that out while I was solving.. They're related.

But what is the answer to the question?

Tn= 2(n-1)2+4(n-1) -1
Re: What Are The Next Three Numbers In This Sequence? by DrayZee: 8:23pm On Aug 06
MrOlai:


According to your formula, when n =1, you wouldn't get -1.
Lol. Check again.

grin You're very correct!

I didn't observe your formula very well. Kudos!

But the sequence is not an AP.

Tn= 2(n-1)2+4(n-1) -1
What about this:
Tn= 2n2 - 3
Re: What Are The Next Three Numbers In This Sequence? by mustapha112: 9:02pm On Aug 06
Tn=2(n-1)^2+4(n-1)-1 2(n-1) (n-1)+4(n-1)-1 2[n^2-n-n+1]+4n-4-1 2n^2-2n-2n+2+4n-4-1 collect like terms 2n^2-2n-2n+4n+2-4-1 2n^2-4n+4n+2-4-1 2n^2+2-4-1 2n^2+2-5 Tn= 2n^2-3 final answer
