HP 50g Sequence

How would i go about doing sequences in the HP50g calculator?

For example: T = 5, 9, 13, 17, 21
The equation for T is Tn = (Tn-1) + 4

Using the calculator, how would i find the Nth term? like... T7

I know it's possible on the HP39g+ and the casio. Please respond as soon as possible.

Thanks for your assistance,

Re: HP 50g Sequence

Hi Fox.
Just a couple of quick hints about your need:
1) I found a thread on comp.sys.hp48, where a short program is listed - check it out:

http://groups.google.com/group/comp.sys.hp48/browse_frm/thread/1919d46eb03a5ec3/1021000c070b926e?lnk...

2) there'a a package for sequence manipulation on www.hpcalc.org (the ultimate gold-mine for HP calcs' software) - just reading the Readme.txt (!) in it, it should suit your needs:

Hope this is helps a bit and is fast enough!
Best regards.
