#### Worksheet Overview

Look at this number sequence:

12, 14, 16, 18, 20, ...

The sequence starts at 12 and the rule is to add 2 to the previous term.

The 1st term is 12

The 2nd term is 14

The 3rd term is 16

The 4th term is 18

The 5th term is 20

Example

A sequence starts at 15 and follows the rule to add 3 to the previous term.

What is the 5th term of this sequence?

The 1st term is 15

The 2nd term is 15 + 3 = 18

The 3rd term is 18 + 3 = 21

The 4th term is 21 + 3 = 24

The 5th term is 24 + 3 = 27

Does that make sense?

Let's try some questions.
