**It is vital that you learn the concept of the recursion formula. I do not think that you have defined this very well.**

**The normal way to specify this sequence of terms is to define f**

_{1}= 5 [you could call it f(1) if you wish).**The next term is f**

_{2 }[or f(2)] and the RECURSION RULE IS f_{n+1}= f_{n}+ 6, for n being an integer from 1 and on up.**This one tells you that to get the next TERM, you take the prior term and add 6.**

**Although your may call this a function, it's not a function of all Real numbers a 'arguments'--the arguments or term # are the positive integers only. The graph of the sequence of f terms is not continuous anywhere.**

**NOW, the successive terms are 5, 11, 17, 23, etc. (starting with the first one).**
