- 25. An ordered list of numbers, such as 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, … is called a sequence. A number sequence is a list of numbers having a first number, a second number, a third number, and so on, called the terms of the sequence. 32
- 26. FINITE AND INFINITE SEQUENCES • 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 • There are only a finite number of terms. • They have a last term. • 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, … • There are infinite number of terms. • They do not have a last term. 33
- 27. Sequences are usually given by stating their general or nth term. NUMBER SEQUENCE Example: Consider the sequence given 𝒂 𝒏 = 𝟑𝒏 + 𝟐 The first five terms of the sequence are 𝒂 𝟏 = 𝟑 𝟏 + 𝟐 = 𝟑 + 𝟐 = 𝟓, 𝒂 𝟐 = 𝟑 𝟐 + 𝟐 = 𝟔 + 𝟐 = 𝟖, 𝒂 𝟑 = 𝟑 𝟑 + 𝟐 = 𝟗 + 𝟐 = 𝟏𝟏, 𝒂 𝟒 = 𝟑 𝟒 + 𝟐 = 𝟏𝟐 + 𝟐 = 𝟏𝟒, 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒂 𝟓 = 𝟑 𝟓 + 𝟐 = 𝟏𝟓 + 𝟐 = 𝟏𝟕 34

- 32. Joey’s school offered him a scholarship grant of ₱ 3,000.00 when he was in Grade 7 and increased the amount by ₱ 500 each year till Grade 10. The amounts of money (in ₱) Joey received in Grade 7, 8, 9, and 10 were respectively: 3000, 3500, 4000, and 4500 Each of the numbers in the list is called a term. Note: We find that the succeeding terms are obtained by adding a fixed number. 40
- 33. In a savings scheme, the amount triples after every 7 years. The maturity amount (in ₱) of an investment of ₱ 6,000.00 after 7, 14, 21 and 28 years will be, respectively: 18000, 54000, 162000, 486000 Note: We find that the succeeding terms are obtained by multiplying with a fixed number. 41

- 40. The constant is called the common difference, denoted with the letter d, referring to the fact that the difference between two successive terms yields the constant value that was added. To find the common difference, subtract the first term from the second term. In mathematics, an arithmetic sequence or arithmetic progression is a sequence of numbers where each term after the first term is obtained by adding the same constant (always the same). 52
- 41. Examples: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, … 3, 7, 11, 15, … 20, 18, 16, 14, … -7, -17, -27, -37, … d=5 d=4 d=-2 d=-10 53
- 42. 2, 5, 8, 11, 14 … In this sequence, notice that the common difference is 3. In order to get to the next term in the sequence, we will add 3; so, a recursive formula for this sequence is: 31 nn aa The first term in the sequence is a1 (sometimes just written as a). Example: 54
- 43. 2, 5, 8, 11, 14 … +3 +3 +3 +3 Every time you want another term in the said sequence of numbers, you have to add d. This means that the second term was the first term plus d. The third term is the first term plus d plus d (added twice). The fourth term is the first term plus d plus d plus d (added three times). So, you can see to get the nth term we have to take the first term and add (n - 1) times d. 𝑑 = 3 dnaan 1 𝑎 = 2 1715231626 a 55
- 44. To find any term of an arithmetic sequence: where: a1 is the first term of the sequence, d is the common difference, n is the number of the term to find. ARITHMETIC SEQUENCE 56
- 45. Find the nth term of the arithmetic sequence 5, 8, 11, 14, … We know that 𝒂 𝟏 = 𝟓 𝒅 = 𝟑 Substituting in the formula, we obtain 𝑎 𝑛 = 𝑎1 + 𝑛 − 1 𝑑 𝑎 𝑛 = 5 + 𝑛 − 1 3 𝑎 𝑛 = 5 + 3𝑛 − 3 𝒂 𝒏 = 𝟐 + 𝟑𝒏 57
- 46. Find the 18th term of the arithmetic sequence 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, … Note that 𝒂 𝟏 = 𝟓, 𝒅 = 𝟑, 𝒏 = 𝟏𝟖. Using the formula for the general term of an arithmetic sequence, we have 𝑎 𝑛 = 𝑎1 + 𝑛 − 1 𝑑 𝑎 𝑛 = 21 + 18 − 1 3 𝑎 𝑛 = 21 + (17)3 𝒂 𝒏 = 𝟕𝟐 Thus, 72 is the 18th term of the sequence. 58
- 47. In the arithmetic sequence 10, 16, 22, 28, 34, … , which term is 124? The problem asks for n when 𝑎 𝑛 = 124. From the given sequence 𝒂 𝟏 = 𝟏𝟎, 𝒅 = 𝟔, 𝒂 𝒏 = 𝟏𝟐𝟒. Substitute these values in the formula to get 𝑎 𝑛 = 𝑎1 + 𝑛 − 1 𝑑 124 = 10 + 𝑛 − 1 6 124 = 10 + 6𝑛 − 6 120 = 6𝑛 𝟐𝟎 = 𝒏 Thus, 124 is the 20th term. 59
- 48. Find the first term of the arithmetic sequence with a common difference of 6 and whose 20th term is 965? Since 𝒂 𝟐𝟎 = 𝟗𝟔𝟓, 𝒅 = 𝟔, 𝒏 = 20 , we have 𝑎20 = 𝑎1 + 𝑛 − 1 𝑑 965 = 𝑎1 + 20 − 1 6 965 = 𝑎1 + 19 6 965 = 𝑎1 + 114 𝑎1 = 965 − 114 = 851 Thus, 851 is the first term. 60
- 49. Find the 15th term of the arithmetic sequence whose first term is 7 and whose 5th term is 19. Find the common difference, d by substituting 𝑎1 = 7 and, 𝑎5 = 19 . Thus, 𝑎5 = 𝑎1 + 𝑛 − 1 𝑑 19 = 7 + 5 − 1 𝑑 19 = 7 + 4𝑑 12 = 4𝑑 3 = 𝑑 Now use 𝒂 𝟏 = 𝟕, 𝒅 = 𝟑, 𝒏 = 𝟏𝟓 𝒂 𝟏𝟓 = 𝟕 + 𝟏𝟓 − 𝟏 𝟑 = 𝟒𝟗 Thus, the 15th term is 49. 61
- 50. Insert two arithmetic means between 8 and 17. Our task here is to find 𝑎2 and 𝑎3 such that 8, 𝑎2, 𝑎3, 17 form an arithmetic sequence. 𝑎1 = 8 𝑎4 = 17 𝑎 𝑛 = 𝑎1 + 𝑛 − 1 𝑑 17 = 8 + 4 − 1 𝑑 17 = 8 + 3𝑑 15 = 3𝑑 5 = 𝑑 We need 𝑎2 and 𝑎3 . Hence, 𝑎2 = 8 + 3 = 𝟏𝟏 and 𝑎3 = 8 + 3 + 3 = 𝟏𝟒 62
- 51. A conference hall has 33 rows of seats. The last row contains 80 seats. If each row has two fewer seats than the row behind it. How many seats are there in the first row? We know that 𝒂 𝟑𝟑 = 𝟖𝟎, 𝒅 = 𝟐, 𝒏 = 33 . Using the formula for the general term of an arithmetic sequence, we have 𝑎33 = 𝑎1 + 𝑛 − 1 𝑑 80 = 𝑎1 + 33 − 1 2 80 = 𝑎1 + 32 2 80 = 𝑎1 + 64 𝑎1 = 80 − 64 = 16 Therefore, there are 16 seats in the first row. 63
- 52. How many numbers between 7 and 500 are divisible by 5? The common difference, d, is 5. Since we want numbers that are divisible by 5, then we let 𝒂 𝟏 = 𝟏𝟎, 𝒂 𝒏 = 𝟓𝟎𝟎. Substitute these values into the general term. 𝑎 𝑛 = 𝑎1 + 𝑛 − 1 𝑑 500 = 10 + 𝑛 − 1 5 500 = 10 + 5𝑛 − 5 495 = 5𝑛 𝟗𝟗 = 𝒏 There are 99 numbers between 7 and 500 that are divisible by 5. 64

- 55. Do you know this? The story is told of a grade school teacher In the 1700’s that wanted to keep her class busy while she graded papers so she asked them to add up all of the numbers from 1 to 100. These numbers are an arithmetic sequence with common difference 1. Carl Friedrich Gauss was in the class and had the answer in a minute or two (remember no calculators in those days). This is what he did: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + . . . + 96 + 97 + 98 + 99 + 100 sum is 101 sum is 101 67
