Answer

The first five terms are: $b_1 = \dfrac{1}{e}; \\b_2= \dfrac{2}{e^2}; \\b_3= \dfrac{3}{e^3}; \\b_4= \dfrac{4}{e^4}; \\b_5= \dfrac{5}{e^5}$

Work Step by Step

Substitute $n=1, 2, 3, 4, 5$ to obtain: $b_1 = \dfrac{1}{e^1}=\dfrac{1}{e}; \\b_2= \dfrac{2}{e^2}; \\b_3= \dfrac{3}{e^3}; \\b_4= \dfrac{4}{e^4}; \\b_5= \dfrac{5}{e^5}$
