MA240.2.1 College Algebra Assignment 8_08 Sequences July 9, 2015 Sequences
Introduction In this paper I will be defining the term graph sequence, recursion formulas and arithmetic sequence. I will also solve the two problems given. Lastly, I will tell how the sums compare to one another. Definition So what exactly is a graph sequence? A graph sequence is basically a set of discreet points on a graph. So they are basically the points that we plot on a graph. The recursion formulas are the nth number term of a sequence. It is the function of the term and can also define sequences using the recursion formulas. The recursion formula looks something like this; a n = 1/n . The last definition that I will cover is the arithmetic sequence. The arithmetic sequence is defined as a sequence in which each term after the first differs from the preceding term by a constant amount. An example of how the formula would look is; a n =1n+d. N is the number of the sequence such as the number of months, years, etc.
