### P.O.D.

Find the 1st 4 terms of the sequence:

tn = ½(n – 7)

*Plug in n = 1 through 4

### Sequence

An ordered list of numbers

### Arithmetic Sequence

Where the difference between any 2 successive terms is a constant d (“The common difference”)

### Formula for ArithmeticSequence

The nth term in an arithmetic sequence is the given formula:

tn = t1 + (n – 1)d

(*t1 = 1st term in sequence

*n = # of term you are trying to find

*d = common difference

### Ex: Find t11 for the arithmetic sequence 7, 11, 15, 19, …

Steps:1st) Find d “Common Difference” 11 – 7 = 4 is common diff.2nd) Plug in t1, n & dinto the formula & solvet11 = 7 + (11 – 1 )4 = 47*t1= 7 (1st term in sequence)*n = 11 (# of term you are trying to find)*d = 4 (the common difference between terms)
