A recursive formula  can be used to find a term based upont the previous term


An algebraic formula can be used to find any term


First one


an  = 5  + 5(n - 1)    where n is the nth term


Second one  is a geometric series


an  =   3n     where n is the nth term



Last one


an   =       n 

             ____        where n is the nth term

              n + 1
