Activity 2
Consider the sequence 2, 6, 18, 54…
Let n = represent the term number in the sequence.
Let A(n) = the value of the nth term of the sequence.
4. What is the common ratio of the sequence?
A (n) = a.r^n= 2.3^n ratio r is= 6/2=18/6 = 3
5. Complete each statement
a. A(1) = 2 = 2 x 3^0
b. A(2) = 6 = 2 x 3 = 2 x 3^1
c. A(3) = 18 = 2 x 3 x 3 = 2 x 3^2
d. A(4) = 54 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 = 2 x 3^3
6. What is the relationship between the exponent and the base 3 and the value of n?
What is #6???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For n = 1, exponent = 0 For n = 2, exponent = 1 For n = 3, exponent = 2 For n = 4, exponent = 3 Can you see the relationship between n and the exponent in each step?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, but the question is look at each n and each corresponding exponent. For each value of n, the exponent is 1 less than n, so for each n, the exponent is n1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now since you see that n is matched to exponent n  1, you get A(n) = 2 x 3^(n 1)
