Homework Help: Find the nth term

  1. Apr 22, 2010 #1
    I'd just like to make sure that I understand this question:

    "The nth tern of a sequence is n2 - 2. Find the value of the 20th term of the sequence."

    Is the question asking me to find the value of the equation if n = 20? (In which case the answer would be 20 x 20 - 2 = 398)
