Calculate the explicit formula

Calculate term number 10

And the Sum of the first 10 terms for:

{1,9,17,25}

Explicit Formula

a_{n} = a_{1} + (n - 1)d

Define d

d = Δ between consecutive terms

d = a_{n} - a_{n - 1}

We see a common difference = 8

We have a_{1} = 1

a_{n} = 1 + 8(n - 1)

Calculate Term (5)

Plug in n = 5 and d = 8

a_{5} = 1 + 8(5 - 1)

a_{5} = 1 + 8(5 - 1)

a_{5} = 1 + 8(4)

a_{5} = 1 + 32

a_{5} = 33

Calculate Term (6)

Plug in n = 6 and d = 8

a_{6} = 1 + 8(6 - 1)

a_{6} = 1 + 8(6 - 1)

a_{6} = 1 + 8(5)

a_{6} = 1 + 40

a_{6} = 41

Calculate Term (7)

Plug in n = 7 and d = 8

a_{7} = 1 + 8(7 - 1)

a_{7} = 1 + 8(7 - 1)

a_{7} = 1 + 8(6)

a_{7} = 1 + 48

a_{7} = 49

Calculate Term (8)

Plug in n = 8 and d = 8

a_{8} = 1 + 8(8 - 1)

a_{8} = 1 + 8(8 - 1)

a_{8} = 1 + 8(7)

a_{8} = 1 + 56

a_{8} = 57

Calculate Term (9)

Plug in n = 9 and d = 8

a_{9} = 1 + 8(9 - 1)

a_{9} = 1 + 8(9 - 1)

a_{9} = 1 + 8(8)

a_{9} = 1 + 64

a_{9} = 65

Calculate Term (10)

Plug in n = 10 and d = 8

a_{10} = 1 + 8(10 - 1)

a_{10} = 1 + 8(10 - 1)

a_{10} = 1 + 8(9)

a_{10} = 1 + 72

a_{10} = 73

Calculate S_{n}:

S_{n} = Sum of the first n terms

S_{n} =

n(a_{1} + a_{n})

2

Substituting n = 10, we get:

S_{10} =

10(a_{1} + a_{10})

2

S_{10} =

10(1 + 73)

2

S_{10} =

10(74)

2

S_{10} =

740

2

Final Answer

S_{10} = 370

What is the Answer?

S_{10} = 370
