## How do you find the fourth term in a sequence?

there is an obvious pattern. Such sequences can be expressed in terms of the nth term of the sequence. In this case, the nth term = 2n. To find the 1st term, put n = 1 into the formula, to find the 4th term, replace the n’s by 4’s: 4th term = 2 × 4 = 8.

## What is the common difference for this arithmetic sequence 4/9 14?

5

Common difference between 4 and 9 = |9-4| =5. Common difference between 9 and 14 = |14-9| =5.

**What is the common difference of the arithmetic sequence 4/7 10 13?**

3

The common difference of the arithmetic sequence 4, 7, 10, 13, 16,… is 3. So, the correct answer is “4, 7, 10, 13, 16,… is 3”.

### What is a sequence of numbers in math?

1 A number sequence is a list of numbers that follow a pattern. 2 An example of a number sequence is 5, 9, 13, 17. 3 To find the difference between each number, subtract one number from the number that comes after it. 4 9 – 5 = 4 and so, the common difference is 4. 5 Each number in a sequence is called a term.

### How do you find the difference between two numbers in a sequence?

A sequence can be formed by adding the same number each time. Subtract one number from the number that comes after it to find this common difference. To find the difference between each number, we subtract one term from the term that is immediately after it.

**How do you find the next term in a sequence?**

Each number in a sequence is called a term. To find the next term in the sequence, add 4 to 17 to make 21. A sequence can be formed by adding the same number each time. Subtract one number from the number that comes after it to find this common difference.

## What is the difference between arithmetic sequences and geometric sequences?

Arithmetic sequences are lists of numbers that have successive terms with constant difference, while geometric sequences are lists of numbers with successive term with constant ratio. Arithmetic sequences have a common difference, while geometric sequences have a common ratio
