How do you find the first five terms given ${a}_{1}=13$ and ${a}_{n+1}={a}_{n}+5$?

You can still ask an expert for help

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 $a}_{n$.

${a}_{1}=13$

${a}_{2}=13+5=18$

${a}_{3}=18+5=23$

${a}_{4}=23+5=28$

${a}_{5}=28+5=33$
