find the 15th term of the sequence: a_(n)=(-1)^n (n+1)

I believe this is a geometric sequence.

Yes, thanks so much!!
What about this one?
find the 3rd term in the sequence: a=(-1)n+15n+1

a3 = (-1)3+153+1 = (-1)454 = 1*625 = 625

Now see if you can compute some other problems with calculating terms in sequences. These two examples should give you the enough of an idea. I assume these are from a textbook. Good Luck!
