Real-Life Scenario: Arithmetic Sequence
Transcript of Real-Life Scenario: Arithmetic Sequence
Real-Life Arithmetic Sequence
by: Savannah Cruz
The number of apples increases by 2 each day. This record of apples creates a arithmetic sequence of 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15,...
I actually chose this scenario for my arithmetic sequence because of the prezi background. I was trying to think of ideas that would make a good arithmetic sequence and when I saw this background the idea just came to me. Since this type of sequence increases or decreases by the same amount between terms this seemed like a perfect scenario.
The Series and Sequences Videos are where I obtained my information for the equations.
Apple Tree Scenario
You own an apple orchard and you decide to graph the amount of apples you see on a specific tree to determine the amount of apples that tree might produce for the season. You find that on day one the tree has 1 apple, on day two you find that the tree has 3 apples, on day four you find that the tree has 5 apples, and the pattern continues on increasing by the same amount of apples per day for the rest of the season.
a = 1
a = a + 2
a = 1
a = 1 + (n - 1) 2
a = 2n - 1
Why this scenario?
