## DrPepperx3 2 years ago does anyone take algebra 1B? Im stuck and need help with a question

1. DrPepperx3

i dont entirely understand what this question means or howto solve it? 6. What is the relationship between the exponent of the base 3 and the value of n?

2. Zelda

What's the question?

3. Zelda

Do you have some sort of pic or equation with that?

4. DrPepperx3

Yes Consider the sequence 2, 6, 18, 54 .... Let n= the term number in the sequence Let A(n)= The value of the nth term of the sequence 4. What is the common ratio in the sequence? 5. Complete each statement a. A(1) = 2 = 2*3 A(1) = 2*3^1 b. A(2) = 6 = 2*3 = 2*3 A(2)= 2*3^1 c. A(3) = 18 = 2*3*3 A(3) = 2*3^2 d. A(4) = 54 = 2*3*3*3 A(4) = 2*3^3 i got the answers ^^ i just need help with that 1 question

5. Zelda

So, basically the power to the n: Like this: \[3^n\] is how many times that number is multiplied with itself. So 3^1 = 3 So 3^2 = 3*3 (2 times) 3^3 = 3*3*3 3^4 = 3*3*3*3 And so on, do you see it?

Ohh no i understand it thank you!

7. Zelda

No problem, hope it helped, mind marking best response?

8. Zelda

Oh, and anynumber to the 0 power equals to 1
