    Practice problem 20
    List the first 10 terms of each of these sequences.
    a) The sequence whose nth term is the larges integer k such that
    When n = 1, , then k = 0 or 1. so the larger one is k = 1.
    When n = 2, , then k = 0, 1, or 2, so the largest one is k = 2.
    When n = 3, , then k= 0, 1, or 2, so the largest one is k= 2.
    When n= 4, , then k = 0, 1, or 2, so the larges one is k = 2.
    When n= 5, , then k = 0, 1, or 2, so the larges one is k = 2.
    When n= 6, , then k = 0, 1, 2, or 3, so the larges one is k = 3.
    When n= 7, , then k = 0, 1, 2, or 3, so the larges one is k = 3.
    When n= 8, , then k = 0, 1, 2, or 3, so the larges one is k = 3.
    When n= 9, , then k = 0, 1, 2, or 3, so the larges one is k = 3.
    When n= 10, , then k = 0, 1, 2, or 3, so the larges one is k = 3.
    Here
    Therefore, the first 10 terms of the sequences are: 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3.

    b) The sequence whose nth term is

    The first 10 terms are: 1, 5, 19, 65, 211, 665, 2059, 6305, 19171, 58025
    c) The ...

    Solution Summary

    It lists the first 10 terms of each of these sequences. The solution is detialed and well presented.
