Expert Answer:

Hello,
The general term of any sequence is a single term in terms of n which can be used to represent the whole sequence.
There is no standard method to find general term for any sequence. It does depend on the nature of the sequence, whether it is progressing arithmetically (AP), geometrically (GP) or have some random kind of progression.
You may need to check difference or multiplication factor etc between two consecutive terms of a sequence to arrive to a general term.
