1.)Find the next three terms in each sequence.Then, write the rule for finding the nth term with solution
2.)Migo weighed s kilograms.Express algebraically his weight after he gained 2.7 kilograms.
Please help me guys
1. We see that the sequence is just counting by five, so the next three terms are 30, 35, 40.
We can use the \(a_1+(n+1)d\) method, where the first term is 10 and the common difference is 5. Now we get \(10+(n-1)5\), which simplifies to \(5n+5\) .
If you don't know that, we see that we are counting by 5, so we could have \(5n\) . Next, the terms are five above the normal count 5, 10, 15, etc. so we add 5 to get \(5n+5\).
2. Migo simply weights 2.7 more, or \(s+2.7\).
You are very welcome!
