First term is 8

Common difference is 3

an = a1 + d(n – 1)

an = 8 + 3(n – 1)

an = 8 + 3n – 3

an = 3n + 5

Jeff Bivin -- LZHS

First term is -6

common difference is 7

an = a1 + d(n – 1)

an = -6 + 7(n – 1)

an = -6 + 7n – 7

an = 7n - 13

Jeff Bivin -- LZHS

First term is 23

common difference is -4

an = a1 + d(n – 1)

an = 23 + -4(n – 1)

an = 23 -4n +4

an = -4n + 27
