#### Answer

The first six terms are 2, 5, 10, 17, 26, and 37.

#### Work Step by Step

$a_{n}$=$n^{2}$+1
$a_{1}$=$(1)^{2}$+1 =2
$a_{2}$=$(2)^{2}$+1 =5
$a_{3}$=$(3)^{2}$+1 =10
$a_{4}$=$(4)^{2}$+1 =17
$a_{5}$=$(5)^{2}$+1 =26
$a_{6}$=$(6)^{2}$+1 =37
*To find a certain term, plug the number of the term in for 'n' and simplify.
