Question

Write explicit formula. a subscript n equals a subscript n minus 1 end subscript plus 6 semicolon a subscript 1 equals 9

Hint:

  • A sequence is said to be arithmetic if the common difference is always constant.
  • The General formula of any AP is a subscript n equals a subscript 1 plus left parenthesis n minus 1 right parenthesis d.

The correct answer is: a_n=6n+3


    • We have given a subscript n equals a subscript n minus 1 end subscript plus 6 comma a subscript 1 equals 9
    • We have to find the explicit formula of the given sequence.
    Step 1 of 1:
    We know that the recursive formula of an AP is a subscript n equals a subscript n minus 1 end subscript plus d, where d is common difference.
    Here we have a subscript n equals a subscript n minus 1 end subscript plus 6
    So, d = 6
    Also, We have a1 = 9
    So, The explicit formula will be
