# How do you find the pattern for a list?

A few thoughts...

Though it's unclear exactly what kinds of issues you wish to tackle, I believe you are alluding to some sort of sequence.

Let's examine several sequence types and the rules that go along with them.

The arithmetic sequence

There is a common difference between terms in an arithmetic sequence, and you have to add that difference to go from one term to the next.

Writing a recursive rule is possible:

The explicit rule for a general term can be expressed as follows:

Sequence in geometry

There is a common ratio in a geometric sequence, which you must multiply by in order to move from one term to the next.

Writing a recursive rule is possible:

Additionally, we must define the beginning point:

The explicit rule for a general term can be expressed as follows:

Recursion in linear form

A linear recursive rule, in which each subsequent term is dependent upon the two or more preceding terms, can also be used to define a sequence.

The Fibonacci sequence is a well-known example of one of these sequences; it can be defined recursively by:

It begins:

How can one obtain an explicit rule for such a linear recursion?

Think of a geometric series:

first, x, x^2, x^3,...

Consequently, given a rule:

The quadratic equation can be related as follows:

will fulfill the recursive requirement.

Regarding the Fibonacci sequence, we discover:

To find a pattern in a list, examine the relationship between consecutive terms. Look for any arithmetic, geometric, or other recurring sequences. Analyze the differences or ratios between consecutive terms to determine the pattern. You can also try graphing the data to visually identify any trends or patterns.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
