1.)The number missing in the sequence 2,6,12,20,x,42,56 is
x=30
2.)Find the seventh term of the pattern 0^0 , 1^1, 2^2, 3^3… in standard form
im guessing 6^6. But what is standard form?

3.)The first term of an arithmetic sequence is 33. The common difference is 5. What is the 7^th term in the sequence?
Is it the seventh term or the 7^th term?

4.)Kim bought 4 fish. Every month the number of fish she has doubles. After m months she will have F fish, where F = 4x2^m . How many fish will Kim have after 2 months? 16 fish

Is it the seventh term or the 7^th term? $a_n=a_a + (n-1)d$ 4.)Kim bought 4 fish. Every month the number of fish she has doubles. After m months she will have F fish, where F = 4x2^m . How many fish will Kim have after 2 months? 16 fish... you have to compute $F=4\cdot 2^2$ 5.)Steve wishes to contribute$3,500 to his favorite charities, A and B, in the ratio of 2 to 3. The amount he should contribute to A is : 1,400 yes..

I think if you post less problems per thread, which by the rules is only supposed to be 1, then you will get more help here. I would also suggest seeing this thread for tips on the best way to receive help.

Is it the seventh term or the 7^th term?
(2) 6^6=46656=4.6656x10^4

(3)a=33 , d=5

$
T_7=a+(n-1)d , sub appropriately .
$

7. Alright, so what about #4?

Thats really the only thing thats left

8. you are right .

4,8,16 .

You know what. I'm just going to close this thread. It is a complete shambles - it contains posts I've moved from a thread where these questions have been double posted, and the OP has made repeated edits to the original post.
