Hi Susan. All of these words are not part of the math. Only the words done in Nemeth Code need to be uncontracted.

I have put the "math" words in boldface, below. I have also attached a transcription of these three bulleted items.

- Arithmetic sequence:
**nth term = Original Term + (n−1)d**, where d is the constant difference between terms. - Geometric sequence:
**nth term = Original Term × r<sup>(n−1)</sup>**, where r is the constant ratio. - Group Formula:
**Total = Group 1 + Group 2 − Both + Neither**

Let me know if I didn't understand your question.
