What is the nth term in mathematics?

Answer

The 'nth' term is a formula that enables one to find any term of a sequence. It is used in mathematics and is applied to help one find the result without having to skip from one value to the next. It is used in evaluating either the constant difference sequences or changing difference sequences.

In mathematics, the nth term of a sequence is the defined term that is in a sequence, for example, when looking for the 30th term, you put 30 in the place of ā€˜nā€™. When looking for the nth term of a constant difference sequence, the formula that is used is nth term = dn + (a - d) where a is the first term and d is the common difference. When looking for the nth term of a changing difference sequence, you use the formula nth term = a + (n - 1)d + Ā½(n - 1)(n - 2)c where c is the second difference and d is the first difference.
