The formula for an arithmetic sequence is ${a}_{n}={a}_{1}+(n-1)d$

where $a}_{1$ is the first term and d is the difference between terms.

In this case ${a}_{1}=-3$ and d=−2

${a}_{n}=-3+(n-1)(-2)=-3-2n+2=-2n-1$

${a}_{n}=-2n-1$

where $a}_{1$ is the first term and d is the difference between terms.

In this case ${a}_{1}=-3$ and d=−2

${a}_{n}=-3+(n-1)(-2)=-3-2n+2=-2n-1$

${a}_{n}=-2n-1$

Let G be a group and let F be the family of all subgroups of finite index. Let $\left\{{x}_{n}\right\}$ be a sequence in G. We define this sequence to be Cauchy if given $H\in F$ there exists $n}_{0$ such that for $m,n\ge {n}_{0}$ we have ${x}_{n}{x}_{m}^{-1}\in H$ . We define multiplication of two sequences componentwise.

Now, we define$\left\{{x}_{n}\right\}$ to be a null sequence if given $H\in F$ there exists $n}_{0$ such that for $n\ge {n}_{0}$ we have ${x}_{n}\in H$ .

Prove that the null sequences N form a normal subgroup of the Cauchy sequences C.

Now, we define
