Which sequence satisfies the rule n/4?

Hi Shelly,

This is what you sent

n represents the position of the term in the sequence. So the first term in the sequence is n=1, the second term is n=2, etc.

So just write out n/4 several times in a row. The first time, replace n with a "1", the second time replace it with a "2" and so on.

Reduce the fractions as you go into simplest terms. What answer matches?

Hope this helps,
Stephen La Rocque.
