sequence

2,9,16,23,30

2, 2+7*1, 2+7*2, 2+7*3.. so it is 2+n*7 (where n = whole number)

 

344: 344-2=342/7 = 48.85 what is not a whole number. She is wrong

the answer is correct

body preview (137 words)

 

   xxxxx term x x = 2 

  common difference = x = ax - ax = x x x x 7

  xxx term = ax = a + x x x 1 ) x

                    xx = 2 + ( n x x )7

                         x x + xx x x

                        x  7n x 5

xxx xxx xx xxxx xx given A P

   344 x x + ( x - x ) 7

  xxx  x x + 7n - 7

   344  x  7n x x

 344 + 5 x 7n

  xxx x x x n

   n x 49.14

  xxxx xx not a xxxxx xxx so 344 xx xxx x xxxx xx xxxxx x x
