Asked by Szymon

Whichterminthe sequence 3𝑛 + 8 will be the first term above 30?

1) Put the sequence = to 30 to find out which term is just below 30 3n+8=30 2) Rearrange the equation to find out the value of n. 3n=22 n=7.3333 3) So we know that the 7.3th term is = to 30 so that would mean that the 7th term is less than 30 and the 8th term is more than 30 which is what the question wants. 4) Just to prove that the 8th term works substitute n as 8 (3x8)+8 = 24+8 = 32 Your answer is the 8th term.
