# Thread: nth term fractional sequence

1. ## nth term fractional sequence

Can anyone see the nth term of this...I've been at it for ages but can't crack it

2/3, 3/4, 4/5, 5/6, .....

Thanks

$\frac{1+n}{2+n}$
where $n = 1, 2, 3, ...$

3. 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!

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
