# How do you write the first 5 terms of the sequence An= 3n +1?

Oct 20, 2015

The sequence is: 4,7,10,13,16,...

#### Explanation:

To calculate $m - t h$ term of a sequence you have to substitute $n$ in the formula. For example:

${a}_{\textcolor{red}{1}} = 3 \cdot \textcolor{red}{1} + 1 = 3 + 1 = 4$

${a}_{\textcolor{red}{2}} = 3 \cdot \textcolor{red}{2} + 1 = 6 + 1 = 7$

and so on.
