Hi JEF

A general term is a formula that gives us the value of an n-th term of a sequence directly.

And we're assuming base ten here.

Hi anonimnystefy,

I disagree.
It's correct for the terms in the question.

"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  - Buddha?
