#2**+3 **

Hi, I was looking at this today in my work but doesnt n equal to the nth term, with values (in most cases 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7...; but which could be set to be less than 1 also I guess.) Is this right, could you elaborate for me please. Thanks.

Best Answer

n is the POSITION OF THE N'TH TERM.

IN THE SEQUENCE 3,5,7,9,11,.....

The second term is 5

the 5th term is 11

the n'th term could be written as 2n+1

In this context n cannot be 0. What is the 0th term? It does not make sense!
