To generate terms in a sequence, you would put in the number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, . . ., etc., for however many terms you are looking for.  For instance, to generate the first terms in each sequence, you would put in n = 1.  For the second term, you would put in n = 2.  So, what we would have in order for the first 5 terms of each sequence:

n = 1

1) 11

2) 0

3) -13

4) -2

5) 8

6) -1

n = 2

1) 14

2) 3

3) -10

4) 4

5) 17

6) 8

n = 3

1) 19

2) 8

3) -5

4) 14

5) 32

6) 23

n = 4

1) 26

2) 15

3) 2

4) 28

5) 53

6) 44

n = 5

1) 35

2) 24

3) 11

4) 46

5) 80

6) 71
