A sequence is formed by adding 2 to the triple of the previous term. If the first term is 1 , how many multiples of 6 less than 10000  would be terms of the sequence?

Do you undestand the question?

First term = 1

2nd term  =1 x 3 + 2 = 5

3rd term  =5 x 3 + 2 = 17

4th term   =17 x 3 + 2 = 53

5th term =53 x 3 + 2 = 161

6th term=161 x 3 + 2 = 485

7th term=485 x 3 + 2 = 1457

8th term=1457 x 3 + 2 =4373

9th term=4373 x 3 + 2 =Goes over 10,000

Of the 8 terms, how many of them are multiple of 6? Or are divisible by 6? Use your calculator and find out!.

Any number divisible by 6 is also divisible by 3.

If you add 2 to any multiple of 3 the result is not divisible by 3.

Hence none of the numbers in the sequence are divisible by 6.
