### Basic Sequences

Basic Sequences Exercises

Some basic sequences exercises here. Again, most of them are easy, but this is just for practice and fun.

1. Find the next two numbers in the sequence 12, 15, 18, _, _
2. Find the next two numbers in the sequence 14, 12, 10, _, _
3. Find the next two numbers in the sequence 8, 5, 2, _, _
4. Find the nth term of the sequence 5, 7, 9, 11,
5. Find the nth term of the sequence -2, 2, 6, 10,
