A sequence is a collection of objects in which repetitions are allowed. For example, the sequence (2, 4, 6, 8, 10) of even numbers can be written as {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}, {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}, {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}, {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}, {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}, {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}, or any other of an infinite number of ways. The numbers in the sequence are called the terms of the sequence. The first number in the sequence is called the first term, the second number is called the second term, and so on. The nth term of a sequence is the number that is the nth member of the sequence. The kth term of a sequence is the number that is the kth member of the sequence.

we have another number four in which we need to find the first five terms of the sequence given by the expression and equal to two and minus three by six. So let us plug in, start playing from one and then move ahead. When an equal to one Even will be equal to two and 21 -3 x six. So this will be to -3 -1 x six. When an equal to 28 will be equal to two into two -3 x. six. x 6 of an unequal to three. It will be equal to two in 2 3 -3 x six. That is three x 6 Which will be equal to one x 2. Okay, when an equal to fall A fool will be equal to two into 4 -3 x six. Five by six. Okay and equal to five A five will be equal to two into 5 -3 x six. That is seven by six. So these are the first five terms. This is the first term, second term, third term, four term and 5th time. Thank you.
