# Write the first five terms of the sequences whose n^{th} term is a_{n} = n/(n + 1)

**Solution:**

nth term is given as a_{n} = n/(n + 1)

Substituting n = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

a_{1} = 1/(1 + 1) = 1/2

a_{2} = 2/(2 + 1) = 2/3

a_{3} = 3/(3 + 1) = 3/4

a_{4} = 4/(4 + 1) = 4/5

a_{5} = 5/(5 + 1) = 5/6

Therefore, the required terms are 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, 4/5, and 5/6

## Write the first five terms of the sequences whose n^{th} term is a_{n} = n/(n + 1)

**Summary:**

We are given that the nth term of the sequence is a_{n} = n/(n+1), therefore using the formula the answers are 1/2, 2/3, 3/4, 4/5, and 5/6
