5,500 points to complete level 1. To move
through each additional level, you must
score an additional 3,250 points. What
number would you use as a when writing
an arithmetic sequence to represent this
situation? What would n represent? Write an
explicit formula to represent this situation.
Write a recursive formula to represent this
situation.

Step-by-step explanation:

a1 = 5500, since you are starting there, and n would represent the level you want to complete. 3250 would be d, or the number you are going up by each time.

This would give you the equation an = 5500 + 3250(n-1) as the explicit formula, and an = an-1 + 3250 as your recursive formula.
