Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i 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
