1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I don't know how to use the above template considering I don't actually have a specific question from my homework, but I do have a question that I need answered to complete my homework. Anyway, my book asks me to write a function that would correspond to a sequence, and then later asks me to write a general term for the nth term of that same sequence. Would these be the same answer? I wrote them down as the same answer just with n instead of x for the general term question. They also asked me for a recursive formula for the sequence. Can a general term be a recursive formula or a non recursive formula? Thanks in advance. I just really don't understand what a general term is. Is it possible that they want the same answer for the general term and recursive formula, or function? My problem is really that after writing a function, and a recursive formula for a sequence, I can't think of any other way to write a formula differently that could be considered a general term. I don't know what a general term is in the first place though.
