Find the next three terms of the following sequence.
(ii) 5, 1,-3,…
Solution :
Pattern :
By subtracting 4 from the 1st term, we get second term. By subtracting 4 from 2nd term, we get 3rd term.
4th term  = -3 - 4  = -7
5th term  = -7 - 4  = -11
6th term  = -11 - 4  = -15
Hence the next three terms are -7, -11, -15.
