Question from cyaz, a parent:

write a rule for each sequence then find next 3 terms for 7/8, 3 1/8, 5 3/8

Hi Cyaz,

You have a 3 number sequence

\[\frac78, 3 \frac18, 5 \frac38 .\]

The first term is a fraction and the next two terms are mixed numbers. Write the second and third terms as improper fractions.

Can you see the pattern now?

Write back if you need more assistance,
