# How do you write the first six terms of the sequence a_n=n+1?

Sep 21, 2016

$2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7$

#### Explanation:

To generate the terms in a sequence given the $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{nth term formula}}$ substitute the value of the term into the formula.

That is.

First term : n = 1 $\Rightarrow {a}_{1} = 1 + 1 = 2$

Second term : n = 2 $\Rightarrow {a}_{2} = 2 + 1 = 3$

Third term : n = 3 $\Rightarrow {a}_{3} = 3 + 1 = 4$

and so on until n = 6 is reached.

The first six terms are 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7
