Ho2 do you find the first five terms of the arithmetic sequence given a_1=4/3 and d=-1/3?

$\frac{4}{3} , 1 , \frac{2}{3} , \frac{1}{3} , 0$

Explanation:

${a}_{1} = \frac{4}{3}$ (given)

${a}_{2} = \frac{4}{3} + \left(- \frac{1}{3}\right) = 1$

${a}_{3} = 1 - \frac{1}{3} = \frac{2}{3}$

${a}_{4} = \frac{2}{3} - \frac{1}{3} = \frac{1}{3}$

${a}_{5} = \frac{1}{3} - \frac{1}{3} = 0$
