MathGiven 1, 1/2, 1/6, 1/24, 1/120 In this sequence the numerator of each term is 1. The terms in the denominator follow the n! (factorial) pattern. The expression for the nth them of the sequence is...

MathThe `n`th term is `a_n=(1)^(n1)` Let us check: `a_1=(1)^0=1` `a_2=(1)^1=1` `a_3=(1)^2=1` `a_4=(1)^3=1` The solution is obvious if we know that `(1)^n=1` when `n` is even and `(1)^n=1`...

MathLet us start with the sequence `1,1,1,1,1,1,...` The `n`th term of this sequence is `(1)^n` (for odd `n` we get `1` while for even `n` we get `1`) If we add `2` to each term of this sequence...

MathLet us first write the first two terms as fractions as well. `1/1,3/1,3^2/2,3^3/6,3^4/24,3^5/120,...` In the numerator we have powers of 3 (`3^0=1` and `3^1=3`). In the denominator we have...

MathThis is a constant sequence, meaning that all the terms are the same. Therefore, the first five terms are the same. In this case they are equal to `2/3.` `a_1=2/3` `a_2=2/3` `a_3=2/3` `a_4=2/3`...

Math`a_1=1+(1)^1=11=0` `a_2=1+(1)^2=1+1=2` `a_3=1+(1)^3=11=0` `a_4=1+(1)^4=1+1=2` `a_5=1+(1)^5=11=0` This sequence alternates between 0 and 2.

Math`a_n=(1)^n(n/(n+1))` `a_1=(1)^1(1/(1+1))=(1)(1/2)=1/2` Plug in n=2, to get the 2nd term `a_2=(1)^2(2/(2+1))=(1)(1)(2/3)=2/3` Plug in n=3, to get the 3rd term...

MathIt is obvious that each term is greater by four than the previous term which implies that this is arithmetic sequence. And since the first term is 3 we have `a_n=3+4(n1)=3+4n4=1+4n` The `n`th...

MathLet us compare this sequence with the following one `1,4,9,16,25,...` This is the sequence of square numbers `n^2` and each term of our sequence is one smaller then the terms in the above sequence....

MathNumerator starts with 2 and is increased by one in each term that follows `(n+1).`Denominator starts with 3 and is increased by one in each term that follows `(n+2).` Signs alternate between + and...

MathThe expression for the apparent term is `a_n=(1)^(n1)/(2^n)` ` ` `a_1=(1)^(11)/2^1=1/2` `a_2=(1)^(21)/2^2=1/4` `a_3=(1)^(31)/2^3=1/8` `a_4=(1)^(41)/2^4=1/16`

MathThe numerators are an arithmetic sequence with the difference 1, the denominators  of the difference 2. The resulting formula is a_n= (n+1)/(2n1).

MathNumerator contains powers of 2 starting with `2^0=1` while the denominator contains powers of 3 starting with `3^1=3.` Therefore, the `n`th term is `a_n=2^(n1)/3^n`...

MathNumerator is always 1 while the denominator is a square number, thus we can write the sequence as follows `1/1^2,1/2^2,1/3^2,1/4^2,1/5^2,...` From this we see that the `n`th terms is `a_n=1/n^2`

Math`a_n=4n7` `a_1=4*17=3` `a_2=4*27=87=1` `a_3=4*37=127=5` `a_4=4*47=167=9` `a_5=4*57=207=13` So, the first five terms of the sequence are `3,1,5,9,13`

Math`3^n` is 3, 9, 27, 81 and 243. Therefore the first five terms are 21/3 = 1 and 2/3, 21/9 = 1 and 8/9, 21/27 = 1 and 26/27, 21/81 = 1 and 80/81, 21/243 = 1 and 242/243.

Math`a_n=(2)^n` `a_1=(2)^1=2` `a_2=(2)^2=2*2=4` `a_3=(2)^3=2*2*2=8` `a_4=(2)^4=2*2*2*2=16` `a_5=(2)^5=2*2*2*2*2=32` So, the first five terms of the sequence are `2,4,8,16,32`

Math`a_n=(1/2)^n` `a_1=(1/2)^1=1/2` `a_2=(1/2)^2=1/4` `a_3=(1/2)^3=1/8` `a_4=(1/2)^4=1/16` `a_5=(1/2)^5=1/32` So, the first five terms of the sequence are `1/2,1/4,1/8,1/16,1/32`

Math`a_n=n/(n+2)` `a_1=1/(1+2)=1/3` `a_2=2/(2+2)=2/4=1/2` `a_3=3/(3+2)=3/5` `a_4=4/(4+2)=4/6=2/3` `a_5=5/(5+2)=5/7` So, the first five terms of the sequence are `1/3,1/2,3/5,2/3,5/7`

MathThese terms are fractions, their numerators and denominators are easy to compute. The first five terms are 3, 12/11, 9/13, 24/47 and 15/37.

Math`(1)^n` is 1 for even n and 1 for odd n. So `1+(1)^n` is 2 or 0, respectively. So the first five terms are 0, 1, 0, 1/2 and 0.

MathThe first five terms are 1, 1/4, 1/9, 1/16 and 1/25.
