Q:
# Find the formula for the nth term of the arithmetic sequence a=1,d=5

Accepted Solution

A:

To find the formula for the nth term of this sequence, we can use the following formula:
nth term = a + (n-1)d
Where "a" is the first term, "d" is the common difference, and "n" is the term number we want to find.
Substituting the values of "a" and "d" into this formula, we get:
nth term = 1 + (n-1)5
Simplifying this expression, we get:
nth term = 5n - 4
