I'm doing patterns and they want me to find the next term in the following sequence: 3, 9, 27, 81...
I first tried 9. That didn't work so I tried 3. It seemed to come out right but teacher said it didn't. I don't want an answer.. I just need help figuring it out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh.. thanks rim182946! That makes sense. I forgot that two negatives multiplied together make a positive. the reason why my teacher said it was wrong was because I answered 243
