  1. I look at it as having ordered pairs (1,3), (2,10), (3,17) etc
    looks like the y's increase by 7 for every increase of 1 in the x's, so the slope = 7

    thus y = 7x + b
    plug in (1,3) ----> 3 = 7 + b or b = -4
    y = 7x - 4

    in sequence terms: termn = 7n - 4
    term100 = 7(100)-4 = 696

    you were right. Did you use a different method?
