Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, if the terms are labled \[n _{1}\] for the first term \[n _{_{2}}\] for the second, and so on. Does \[n _{1} = 4n _{3} + n _{2}\] or\[n _{1} = 4(n _{3} + n _{2})\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can't we say a=first term where a=4T3 ,a=4(ar^2)>(1) T2+T5=36 ,ar+ar^4=36 , ar(1+r^3)=36>(2) and deal with these two equations ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But how come the first term be fraction ,I think something is going wrong :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The first term isn't a fraction. The first term is "a" which is 64. "r" is the number we're multiplying each term by to get the next.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So first term is 64, second is 32, third is 16, fourth is 8, fifth is 4 ..... 4 * 16 = 64 (first term equal to 4 times third term) and 32 + 4 = 36 (second term plus fifth term equals 36). It fits both of the original equations.
