Does anyone know how to graph sequences on the calculator?

What does the "n1" mean on numbers 53 and 54 of section 12.1. Those are the only 2 problems on that page that have that, and I don't know why it's throwing me off. If someone could explain that would be nice.

How would you solve numbers like 1118 in section 12.2? The homework problems are 14 and 18. I am confused as to how they are deriving the equation.

How would you solve number 37 and 39 in 12.2? The formula for solving "Sn" isn't working for this...

I have no idea how to do problems 47 or 54 on the homework. Can anyone explain which equations they used and how?

On Thursday we went over more of the summation problems and explored different types of those, and Friday we talked about using fraction decomposition and using it with sequencing problems to find the summation (we did the first problem of the worksheet that's up on the precalc tab, so I would suggest printing that off and using it to your advantage...it WILL be on Friday's test!!).

On the telescoping worksheet with the partial fraction decomposition stuff, how do you know that the limit of the very last problem is 3/2? I was confused on this because the "cancelling out" for this problem is different from the other problems. Any help would be appreciated!

how do you know in the geometric equations if you should use n or n1

What is the exact difference between an explicit and a recursive form of the sequence formula?
Chandan Yashraj

besides the fact that recursive is n1 and explicit is just n...?

For number 4 in section 12.4, why is it saying "if k(k+1)"? Shouldn't it be "if k(k+2)", hence what the problem says?

Recursive means your using the previous terms to get the next one while in explict you are not

On the worksheets we did in class today, when it said to "prove" that the formula works for all real numbers, in the math induction worksheet...how do you prove it? I was completely stuck on this part. Thanks.

Chandan on the worksheets "proving" really means to just use S1, Sk, and Sk+1 to find the right side of the equation. Thats all you have to do. It was confusing to our class too but mrs. johnson explained that all you have to do is prove s for those three numbers

Hi guys! I had a quick question, how do your prove 19, on 12.4?
