Now lets say that you only had one block of cactus.

In Minecraft, one block will grow to be three blocks high.

After your one block grows you will have 3 blocks of cactus.

We will call this "3" T1 since you only have to plant one cactus Now each of those 3 blocks can grow to three more. Again, each of the 9 cactus is multiplied by three

and you get T3 Geometric Using the explit formula we can write the equation

specific to this situation. The same equation can be written with the recursive formula. Arithmetic and

Geometic

Sequences In Minecraft By Nicholas Music Arithmetic Lets say, for example, that you wanted to build a big glass dome... In Minecraft you can

put sand in a furnace

with coal and it will

become glass Each coal produces enough

heat to make 8 glass We will call the 8 glass T1 since you only

need one coal. Knowing that we can write

the explicit equation It can also be written using the recursive formula. common ratio common difference Thank you t1=8

t2=16

t3=24

t4=32

t5=40 By the 5th

coal you will

have 40

glass t1=3

t2=9

t3=27

t4=81

t5=243 By the 5th

cycle you will

have 243 cactus
