$a_{200} = 955$
RECALL: The $n^{th}$ term, $a_n$, of an arithmetic sequence can be found using the formula: $a_n=a_1 + d(n-1)$ where $a_1$ = first term $n$ = term number $d$ = common difference Use the formula with $a_1=-40$ and $d=5$ to obtain: $a_{200} = -40 + 5(200-1) \\a_{200}= -40 + 5(199) \\a_{200} = -40 + 995 \\a_{200} = 955$
