    It's like before; find the common ratio first.. \[\large \frac{T_{2}}{T_{1}} = \frac{14}{28} = \frac{1}{2} \] \[\large \frac{T_{3}}{T_{2}} = \frac{7}{14}=\frac{1}{2} \] Then use the formula.. \[\large T_n = ar ^{n-1}\] where a is the first term of the sequence and r is the common ratio.. \[\large T_n = \frac{7}{1024} \] \[\large ar ^{n-1} = \frac{7}{1024} \]

    \[(n-1) \log(\frac{1}{2}) = \log(\frac{7}{1024*28})\] \[n-1 = 12\] n = 13
