Example Question #3 : Summations And Sequences
List the first 4 terms of an arithmetic sequence with a first term of 3, and a common difference of 5.
An arithmetic sequence is one in which the common difference is added to one term to get the next term. Thus, if the first term is 3, we add 5 to get the second term, and continue in this manner.
Thus, the first four terms are:
