The way to get any equation off an arithmetic sequence is using this:

$t\left(n\right)=a+\left(n-1\right)\left(d\right)$

d = the difference between two terms
n = term number
a = 1st term

As we can see from the sequence:

a = -26
d = 11

Substitute:

$\to t\left(n\right)=-26+\left(n-1\right)\left(11\right)$
$\to t\left(n\right)=11n-37$
