To begin, let's observe the given terms in the sequence to determine the value of the first term as well as the .
As we can see
We can use this information to write an equation for the
term of the sequence.
We can calculate the fifth term of the sequence,
, by substituting
into our equation.
Graphing the Sequence
When graphing a sequence, the axis always represents the number of the term and the axis represents the value of the term
Now let's graph these points on a coordinate plane.
