# How do you write the first six terms of the sequence a_n=3/-n?

May 20, 2018

First six terms of the sequence are,

$- 3 , - \frac{3}{2} , - 1 , - \frac{3}{4} , - \frac{3}{5} , - 2$

#### Explanation:

Given ${a}_{n} = \frac{3}{-} n$

$a = \frac{3}{-} 1 = - 3$ as n = 1

${a}_{2} = \frac{3}{-} 2 = - \frac{3}{2}$ as n = 2

Similarly, ${a}_{3} = \frac{3}{-} 3 = - 1$

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

${a}_{5} = - \frac{3}{5} , {a}_{6} = - 2$
