Answer:= 6n + 1

Step-by-step explanation:This is an arithmetic sequence with nth term

= a₁ + (n – 1)d

where a₁ is the first term and d the common difference

Here a₁ = 13 – 6 = 7 and d = 6 , then

= 7 + 6(n – 1) = 7 + 6n – 6 = 6n + 1

Answer:the first few terms would be

7, 13, 19, 25, 31

nth term = 7 + 6(n+1)

nth term = 7+ 6n + 6

nth term = 6n + 13
