In this lecture, Professor Fraser will cover Geometric Sequences starting with the Common Ratio. Then, you will learn how to compute the nth Term of a Geometric Sequence before finishing the lesson with Geometric Means and the Missing Term.
You can use the
formula for the nth term of a series to find the first
If you need to
find a particular term and you are given the kth term, first use the
kth term to find the first term. Then use the first term to find
the term you are asked to find.
geometric means, remember that you might get two different values of
r, one positive and the other negative. Use both values to
obtain two different sets of geometric means. Each set is a
solution to the problem.
