## College Algebra (6th Edition)

(See p.707) A sequence is a FUNCTION defined on the set of positive integers, and the function values f(1)$=a_{1}$, f(2)$=a_{2}$, f(3)$=a_{3}$,... are written as $a_{1},a_{2},a_{3},...,a_{n},...$ ----------- If we are given the general term $a_{n}$, it is given in the form $a_{n}=f(n)$ Calculate $f(1), f(2), f(3),...$ to evaluate the terms.
