**NOTES:**

An **explicit formula** designates the n^{th} term of the sequence, as an expression of n (where n = the term's location). It defines the sequence as a **formula** in terms of n. It may be written in either subscript notation a _{n}, or in functional notation, f (n). Sequence: {10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, ...}.

**Arithmetic Sequences**. An **arithmetic sequence** is a **sequence** in which the difference between each consecutive term is constant. An **arithmetic sequence** can be defined by an explicit **formula** in which a_{n} = d (n - 1) + c, where d is the common difference between consecutive terms, and c = a_{1}.

Find an **explicit formula**. This example is an arithmetic sequence(the same number, 5, is added to each term to get to the next term).

**What is the nth term? **

The paper says 36, 30, 25 and 21

Better!!

But, I don't have an answer yet. I don't think this would be called an arithmetic sequence??
