A worksheet on the nth term and term-to-term rule of sequences

The worksheet begins with substitution into an nth term to generate a sequence, progressing to finding an nth term and finishing with harder problems. Suitable for KS4 or upper KS3.

Example question

For each of the sequences in question 1 find the value of term 10 and term 50.

Part (a) has been done as an example.

a.    2n + 1

Term 10 = 20 + 1 = 21

Term 50 = 100 + 1 = 10
