Suppose you want to construct a movie theater in your town. The number of seats in each row can be modeled by the formula C_n = 16 + 4n, when n refers to the nth row, and you need 50 rows of seats.
Write the sequence for the number of seats for the first 5 rows
C(1) = 16 + 4(1) = 16 + 4 = 20 seats in the first row
C(2) = 16 + 4(2) = 16 + 8 = 24 seats in the second row
C(3) = 16 + 4(3) = 16 + 12 = 28 seats in the third row
C(4) = 16 + 4(4) = 16 + 16…
