Homework 2: Arithmetic Sequences and Series
** This is a 2-page document! **
Directions: Determine whether the sequence is arithmetic. If yes, identify the common difference
and give the next three terms.
1. {−3, − 12, − 48, − 192, ... }
2. {−18, − 27, − 36, − 45, ... }
3. {4, 11, 18, 25, ... }
4. {16, 8, 4, 1, ... }
5. {−9, − 33, − 57, − 81, ... }
1 5 7 3
6.  , , , , ... 
2 6 6 2

Directions: Write a rule for each sequence, then find the indicated term.
7. {12, 27, 42, 57, ... } ; a18
8. {29, 9, − 11, − 31, ... } ; a32
9. {−40, − 44, − 48, − 52, ... } ; a49
10. {50, 39, 28, 17, ... } ; a54
11. Karen’s New Year’s resolution is to work out each day on her ellipitcal. The number of calories
she has burned each day since she started is shown below. Write a rule for the sequence, and
find the number of calories that Karen will burn on the 30th day.
