Intersecting Linear Sequences

This resource from Inquiry Maths investigates the connections between linear sequences.

Intersecting linear sequences outlines the prompt which consists of two linear sequences, 3n -2 and 2n+1 which have two terms in common, 7 and 13, which themselves form the first two terms of the linear sequence 6n + 1

Lesson notes describes lines of inquiry that could be followed with students including considerations of limiting cases.
