The second term is -5, the fourth term is -17, and the eleventh term is -59.

Work Step by Step

The given equation is: A(n) = 1 + (n - 1)(-6) Second term:: n=2 Sub in 2 for n in the equation A(2) = 1 + (2 - 1)(-6) A(2) = -5 Fourth term:: n=4 Sub in 4 for n in the equation A(4) = 1 + (4 - 1)(-6) A(n) = -17 Eleventh term:: n=11 Sub in 11 for n in the equation A(11) = 1 + (11 - 1)(-6) A(11) = -59 Therefore, the second term is -5, the fourth term is -17, and the eleventh term is -59.
