How To: Find the formula of a given sequence

Find the formula of a given sequence

In this tutorial, we learn how to find the formula of a given sequence. First, you need to decide what you're starting with. Start with a1, then continue on with a2, a3, and a4. Eventually, you will have an "An". You will have an "n" in your numerator and the denominator will start between the numbers of your fractions. Look to see if that works, then you have to see where the signs alternate on the fractions. Write in any negatives that you have, then figure your power out. Once you follow these rules, you will have the formula down and be finished with the written sequence.
