    So you've got a series here. And you've got to figure out what common situation you've got between successive terms.

    There are a few ways to figure that out. For series there are 2 main routes you can take: 1) successive differences and 2) a common ratio. For Successive Differences you would subtract the previous term by the one after it, and try and find a common difference. For a Common Ratio, you would divide the succesive term by the previous one, and see if the ratio is the same. Try these both now on this problem
