(a) 4, 2, 0, -2, . . .

(b) 4 1ns n

(c) 2 3nt n

OBJECTIVE 2

Find the twenty fourth term of the arithmetic sequence:

-3, 0, 3, 6, . . .

The sixth term of an arithmetic sequence is 26, and the nineteenth term is 78.

(a) Find the first term and the common difference.

(b) Give a recursive formula for the sequence.

(c) What is the nth term of the sequence?

OBJECTIVE 3

Find the sum of the first n terms of the sequence {4n + 2}

Find the sum: 52 + 57 + 62 + 67 + … + 122
