#### Explanation:

The

#color(blue)"nth term formula"#

#a_n=2n# allows us to generate any term in the sequence by substituting the appropriate value for n.To generate the first 6 terms let n=1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

First term:

#a_1=(2xx1)=2# Second term:

#a_2=(2xx2)=4# Third term:

#a_3=(2xx3)=6# The remaining 3 terms are generated in the same way.
