6 Find the next 3 terms. Explain why it is or is not arithmetic. I.5, 8, 11, 14, ____, ____, ____, … II.3, 6, 12, 24, ____, ____, ____, … III.24, 19, 14, ____, ____, ____, … IV.2, 3, 5, 8, 12, ____, ____, ____, … Which are arithmetic sequences?

Sequence Notation L ( x ) is function notation L(1) is the first term of the function. L n is sequence notation. L 1 is the first term of the sequence Question: How is sequence notation similar to function notation?
