Find the first five terms given a 1 = 13 and a n + 1 = a n + 5 .
This is a recursively defined sequence. In other words, the next term is calculated used the value of the previous term.
In this example, to find the next term a n + 1 , add 5 to the previous term a n .
a 1 = 13
a 2 = 13 + 5 = 18
a 3 = 18 + 5 = 23
a 4 = 23 + 5 = 28
a 5 = 28 + 5 = 33
