Trees

A certain species of tree grows an average of 0.5 cm per week. Write an equation for the sequence that represents the weekly height of this tree in centimeters if the measurements begin when the tree is 200 centimeters tall.

Result

x(n) = (Correct answer is: 200+0.5(n-1)) Wrong answer

Solution:

x(n)=200+0.5(n1)x(n)=200+0.5(n-1)
