a = 1000 r = 1/2 n = 12 \[1000 (\frac{1}{2})^{n-1}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
It should be n not n-1
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok I did that and get 0.488281125

\[1000 (\frac{1}{2})^{12}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
But why not n-1?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Because the formula I am given is with n-1, hmm idkk
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do you mean the geometric formula that you are given or this question provides you a formula?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well that's the only formula I am given in my lesson.. yeah the first part of ur question is right
anonymous
  • anonymous
It shouldn't be n-1. You need to visualize the situation
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok, then why don't you use -1? Because the first height wouldn't count right?
