USING AND WRITING SEQUENCESThe numbers in sequences are called terms.You can think of a sequence as a function whose domain is a set of consecutive integers. If a domain is not specified, it is understood that the domain starts with 1.2The domain gives the relative position of each term.1 2 3 4 5 DOMAIN:3 6 9 12 15RANGE:The range gives the terms of the sequence.This is a finite sequence having the rulean = 3n,where an represents the nth term of the sequence.

Example: 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, ...

The terms have a common difference of 2. (known as d)

To find the common difference you use an+1 an
