## anonymous 4 years ago GR.12 MATH: please help // If y-3, y, and 3y+4 are consecutive terms in a geometric sequence, determine the value(s) of y.

• This Question is Closed
1. anonymous

$\frac{y-3}{y}=\frac{y}{3y+4}$ because it's geometric sequence

2. anonymous

(y-3)(3y+4)=y^2 then solve this quadratic equation and both solutions will work for the problem.
