Answer

$a_{1}=1$, $a_{2}=\displaystyle \frac{1}{4}$, $a_{3}=\displaystyle \frac{1}{9}$, $a_{4}=\displaystyle \frac{1}{16}$, $a_{100}=\displaystyle \frac{1}{10,000}$.

Work Step by Step

$a_{n}=\displaystyle \frac{1}{n^{2}}$ $a_{1}=\displaystyle \frac{1}{(1)^{2}}=1$, $a_{2}=\displaystyle \frac{1}{(2)^{2}}=\frac{1}{4}$, $a_{3}=\displaystyle \frac{1}{(3)^{2}}=\frac{1}{9}$, $a_{4}=\displaystyle \frac{1}{(4)^{2}}=\frac{1}{16}$, $a_{100}=\displaystyle \frac{1}{(100)^{2}}=\frac{1}{10,000}$.
