$a_{1}=(1)^2+2=3$ $a_{2}=(2)^2+2=6$ $a_{3}=(3)^2+2=11$ $a_{4}=(4)^2+2=18$ $a_{10}=(10)^2+2=102$ $a_{15}=(15)^2+2=227$

Work Step by Step

If we want to find a term, we have to substitute $n$ by its index: $a_{1}=(1)^2+2=3$ $a_{2}=(2)^2+2=6$ $a_{3}=(3)^2+2=11$ $a_{4}=(4)^2+2=18$ $a_{10}=(10)^2+2=102$ $a_{15}=(15)^2+2=227$
