What Plato gave you should be enough to help you solve the problem. He gave you the pattern of the sequence for an arbitrary n value. Since you're looking for the 15th term of the sequence, you want to find $\displaystyle a_{15}$. And by the formula provided, what would that be?

You substitute $\displaystyle n = 15$ into the given formula.
