    Hmm...it seems simple, I guess I was tackling it all wrong then...

    I was looking for the difference between terms and then the second difference....

    Thanks!

    Re: nth term fractional sequence

    when dealing with fractional sequences, it is wise to find the nth term of the numerator and denominator separately, i.e. find the nth term of 2,3,4,5,... and then find the nth term of 3,4,5,6,... and then write each nth term combine as a fraction again
