## anonymous 4 years ago Is the sequence 3, 12, 36, ... a geometric sequence? Explain

1. saifoo.khan

Use the formula to find out it's rate.

2. anonymous

what lol

3. saifoo.khan

$\frac{12}{3} = 4$ $\frac{36}{12}=3$ So their signs rate is different hence it means they aren't geometric.

hey jenny dont mind me, this is for saifoo, saifoo please dont be mad at me:(.....................ok i made my point

5. saifoo.khan

The formula to find the rate is, $\frac{\text{any term}}{\text{any term before it}}$
