The term is a rule consisting of the variable, n, which enables you to find any term of the sequence without having to go through each one.
We work out the term by finding
If I am trying to find the 67th term of a sequence, I would first generate the rule of the sequence, which we call the term and then substitute 67 into .
If we pick a sequence from above, consisting of the following numbers:
We are able to work out that the term is .
In order to find the 23rd term of the sequence, we substitute for .
Therefore, the term of the sequence is 46.
