## Geometric sequence sequence is one in which the same number is
geometric by each number in the sequence of numbers to get the next number in the
sequence. Here are some examples of geometric sequences:multiplied
Here are some common geometric sequence problems:
added to or subtracted from each term to get the next one, you have an arithmetic sequence.Here are some questions for you: Hint: Use the x
^{y} key on your calculator- What is the next number in this sequence?
**3 9 27 ___**
- What is the 10th term of that sequence? _____
- What is the sum of the first 5 terms of this sequence:
Sum = 3 ( 1 - 3^{5}) / (1 - 3) = Sum = ____________
