# In the sequence, the first term is 4 and the common difference is 3. The fifth term of this sequence is what?

$16.$

#### Explanation:

From the context, it follows that the Seq. under consideration is

an A.P.

In the Usual Notation for A.P., we have, $a = 4 , \mathmr{and} , d = 3.$

$\therefore {T}_{n} = a + \left(n - 1\right) d = 4 + 3 \left(n - 1\right) = 3 n + 1.$

$\Rightarrow \text{ The Red. Term } {T}_{5} = 3 \cdot 5 + 1 = 16.$
