The first step to take is to express the equation in terms of c alone. The function is cn= 12n - 11. Isolate c, c = (12n - 11) / n. we substitute n from 1 to 5, then whenn = 1 ; c = (12*1 - 11) / 1 = 1n = 2 ; c = (12*2 - 11) / 2 = 13/2n = 3 ; c = (12*3 - 11) / 3 = 25/3n = 4 ; (c = (12*4 - 11) / 4 = 37/4n = 5 ; c = (12*5 - 11) / 5 = 59/5
