    Okay, what I am saying is.... I am solving a geometric sequence. In the geometric sequence, the "difference" that you find in an arithmetic sequence is r. It's what you multiply/divide everything by. So, if the number that you multiply/divide everything by, is negative, will it change anything about the sequence (like the numbers in the sequence getting bigger or smaller or alternating from positive to negative)

    In a geometric progression , the sign's will oscillate. t1,-t2,t3,-t4 .... nth term's sign will be (-1)^n+1

    i geometric series has a rationthat it is multiplied by to get the next number in a sequence; if r is negative; then the sequence jumps back and forth between (+) and (-) signs
