Question

What is the 12th term of the sequence 20, 16, 12...?

2 Answer

  • Let's look for a pattern here since it's a sequence of numbers.
    20 to 16 is -4. 16 to 12 is -4.
    -4 is the rule.
    12 -4 = 8 our 4th term is 8.
    8, 4, 0, -4, -8, -12, -16, -20, -24.
    -24 is the 12th term within this sequence.
  • The 12th term in the sequence 20, 16, 12... is:

    -24
