So I was going over some of my Algebra II work and the part that we're going over is COMPLETELY different than the practice problems. We have this question that I didn't even see the directions for how to solve like this:
What are the missing terms of the arithmetic sequence -8, ___, ___, 3
I know that the difference is 11 between the two numbers, but I've tried every way possible to get the correct answer. I don't understand how to do it at all. Help, please?
Hello, delovely9109!
Another approach . . .
I must assume that you know something about Arithmetic Sequences.What are the missing terms of the arithmetic sequence: -8, ___, ___, 3
We have an arithmetic sequence with common difference
. .
But we already know that the fourth term is
So we have: .
Therefore, the sequence is: .
