1, 8, 15
Explanation
The given sequence starts with 1 and increases by 7 each time. So, the next term would be 1 + 7 = 8, and the term after that would be 8 + 7 = 15. Therefore, the first three terms of this arithmetic sequence are 1, 8, and 15.

### What are the first three terms of this arithmetic sequence? (comma/space separated ie. 1, 3, 5)

-1, -6, -11
Explanation
The first term of the arithmetic sequence is -1. To find the second term, we subtract the common difference (-5) from the first term: -1 - (-5) = -1 + 5 = 4. To find the third term, we again subtract the common difference from the second term: 4 - (-5) = 4 + 5 = 9. Therefore, the first three terms of the arithmetic sequence are -1, 4, and 9.

Rate this question:

• 22.

### What are the first three terms of this arithmetic sequence? (comma/space separated ie. 1, 3, 5)

Explanation
The first term of the arithmetic sequence is 3. The common difference between each term is 9 (12 - 3 = 9). To find the second term, we add the common difference to the first term: 3 + 9 = 12. To find the third term, we again add the common difference to the second term: 12 + 9 = 21. Therefore, the first three terms of this arithmetic sequence are 3, 12, and 21.

### What are the first three terms of this arithmetic sequence? (comma/space separated ie. 1, 3, 5)

-3, -5, -7
Explanation
The first three terms of this arithmetic sequence are -3, -5, and -7. In an arithmetic sequence, each term is obtained by adding a constant difference to the previous term. In this case, the constant difference is -2, as each term is 2 less than the previous term. Starting with -3, we subtract 2 to get -5, and then subtract 2 again to get -7. Therefore, the first three terms of the sequence are -3, -5, and -7.

Rate this question:

• 26.

### What are the first three terms of this arithmetic sequence? (comma/space separated ie. 1, 3, 5)

-2, -5, -8
Explanation
The first term of the arithmetic sequence is -2. To find the next term, we subtract the common difference, which is 3, from the previous term. So, -2 - 3 = -5. Continuing this pattern, we subtract 3 from -5 to get the third term, which is -8. Therefore, the first three terms of the arithmetic sequence are -2, -5, -8.
