1. 9514 1404 393

32

Step-by-step explanation:

The first term is 5 and the common difference is 9-5=4, so the n-th term is …

an = a1 +d(n -1)

an = 5 +4(n -1) = 4n +1

Then the term number for the term 129 is …

129 = 4n +1 . . . . . put the given value in the formula

128 = 4n  . . . . . . . subtract 1

32 = n . . . . . . . . . .divide by 4

The 32nd term is 129.
