In a ceratin sequence, each term is equal to the sum of the two previous terms.  If the first term is 8 and the fifth term is 7, then find the sixth term.

This should be fairly easy. I wrote a python program to help you: https://helpforguestgenerator.aberenji2024.repl.run/

or, you could just do it this way.

8+a=b

a+b=c

b+c=7

b+a+b=7

8+a+a+8+a=7

16+3a=7

3a=-9

a=-3

 

8,a,b,c,7

8,-3,5,2,7

SIXTH TERM IS 2+7=9
