Common Errors in Writing Mathematics
The following things are often confused:
equations,
expressions,
functions.
An equation is a statement that two things are equal, like
x3 + 3 x 2 = 0
y = x2 .
or
An expression is some mathematical symbolism without a v

1. Introduction
This paper explores sequences of linear iterates. A sequence of linear
iterates is the sequence cfw_xn where each xn is the result of evaluating
f (x) at xn1 .

In this paper, we will be looking at sequences that are produced by
iterating linear functions. Through the process of examining examples
of sequences, we will attempt to categorize the sequences and nd their
