Answer

$\frac{1}{6}, \frac{1}{5}, \frac{1}{4}, \frac{1}{3}, \frac{1}{2}$

Work Step by Step

Let's evaluate $a_1, a_2, a_3, a_4, $and $a_5$ by plugging in $1, 2, 3, 4, $ and $5$ for each $n$. $a_1 = \frac{1}{7-1} = \frac{1}{6}$ $a_2 = \frac{1}{7-2} = \frac{1}{5}$ $a_3 = \frac{1}{7-3} = \frac{1}{4}$ $a_4 = \frac{1}{7-4} = \frac{1}{3}$ $a_5 = \frac{1}{7-5} = \frac{1}{2}$
