# What is the explicit formula for the sequence 9, 1, -7, -15?

17 - 8n

The standard sequence is:

a,a+d,a+2d,a+3d, ................ ,a + (n-1)d

where a is the 1st term , d the common difference and a + (n-1)d , the nth term.

here a = 9 , d = 1 -9 = -7-1 = -8

The nth term formula which allows any term in the sequence to be found is :

check 1st term (n=1) = 17 - 8(1) = 17-8 = 9

2nd term (n=2) = 17 - 8(2) = 17-16 = 1 etc.

The explicit formula for the sequence (9, 1, -7, -15) is given by:

[ a_n = 9 - 8n ]

Where (a_n) represents the (n)th term in the sequence.

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.
