Q:
# What is the nth term for the sequence 5 , 14 , 29 , 50 , 77

Accepted Solution

A:

The answer would be 3n^2 + 2.

This can be found/proven by replacing "n" with term number (1,2,3,4...), then solving to get the final number. For example 3 * 1^2 + 2. You would first do 1^2, which is 1. Next, you would multiply 1 by 3, to get 3. Finally, you'd and the 2 to get 5. 5 is the 1st term, and you can use this same equation to get the rest of the terms you need.

I hope this helps!
