# Write the First Five Terms of the Following Sequences Whose Nth Term Are A_N = (N - 3)/3 - Mathematics

Write the first five terms of the following sequences whose nth term are

a_n = (n - 3)/3

#### Solution

a_n = (n - 2)/3

Given sequence a_n = (n - 2)

To write first five terms of given sequence a_n = (n - 2)/3

put n = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 then we get

a_ 1 = (1 - 2)/3 = (-1)/3; a_2 = (2 - 2)/3 = 0

a_3 = (3-2)/3 = 1/3; a_4 = (4 -2)/3 = 2/3

a_5 = (5 - 2)/3 = 1

∴ The required first five terms of given sequence a_n = (n -2)/3 are (-1)/3,0,1/3,2/3,1

Is there an error in this question or solution?
