Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a6 = a1*r^5 8192 = 8*r^5 r^5 = 1024 r = 2 so a12 = a1*r^11 = 8*(2)^11 = 16384 i guess

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what about Identify the 17th term of a geometric sequence where a1 = 16 and a5 = 150.06. Round the common ratio and 17th term to the nearest hundredth.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a5 = a1*r^4 150.6 = 16*r^4 so u can figure r by using calculator 17th term to the nearest hundredth?? I don't understand my eng is not good enough lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0haha ummm dont worry about that part? so like Identify the 17th term of a geometric sequence where a1 = 16 and a5 = 150.06. Round the common ratio and 17th term

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1stephanizer you need to evaluate the answer for your 1st term \[T _{12} = 8\times(4)^{11}\] as the maths is correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok r^4 is approximately 6.4 so a17 = a1*r^16 = a1*((r^4))^4 = 8*(6.4)^4=.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no no r is approximately 9.4 lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got \[150.6 = 16r^4\] r = 1.75 then \[T _{17} = 16 \times(1.75)^{16} =123802\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1^^ how you figure r out ?? did you use calculator??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[r^4 = \frac{150.6}{16}\] then \[r = \sqrt[4]{9.4125} = 1.7499\]
