Answer

$2,\frac{5}{2},\frac{10}{3},\frac{17}{4}$

Work Step by Step

$a_n = n + \frac{1}{n}$ To find the first four terms, we need to find $a_1, a_2, a_3$, and $a_4$. $a_1 = 1 + \frac{1}{1} = 2$ $a_2 = 2 + \frac{1}{2} = \frac{5}{2}$ $a_3 = 3 + \frac{1}{3} = \frac{10}{3}$ $a_4 = 4 + \frac{1}{4} = \frac{17}{4}$
