What Is Finding The Nth Term?

There are different types of sequences, for example the Fibonacci Sequence. Sequences form their own pattern. We'll want to be able to recognise sequences before we find the nth term of a linear sequence. Linear sequence means the sequence progresses in a uniform manner. Linear sequences always go up or down by the same amount. When a sequence is linear we are able to "find the nth term".

How Do You Find The Nth Term in a Sequence?

The Nth term represents an algebraic expression which provides instruction for how to generate a sequence. In the practical example shown, the nth term is 3n + 2, or 3n plus 2. N stands for the position, 1 is the number in the first position of the sequence and 7 is the number in the 7th position of the sequence. To find the number in the 8th position we multiply  3 by 8 add 2. The term is 26. Can you work out the 99th term in the sequence?
