I have two arithmetic sequences. The first term of the first sequence is \(0\). The second term of the first sequence is the first term of the first sequence plus the first term of the second sequence. Similarly, the third term of the first sequence is the second term of the first sequence plus the second term of the second sequence. If the fifth term of the second sequence is \(3\), what is the fifth term of the first sequence?

I think the answer would be 12 : 

 

However the question was very confusing : 

 

0.     3.     6.        9.      12

 

3.     3      3         3.       3 

 

So your anwser would be 12

You are not given enough information to answer this question.  

You need to know something more about the siecond sequence.

 

Breakstick added the assumption that the Difference for the second sequence was 0.  If this was the case than their answer would be accurate.
