## Shannon20150 2 years ago What is the seventh term of a sequence whose first term is 1 and whose common ratio is 3? please someone help me

1. ParthKohli

$a_n = a_1 \times r^{n-1}$

2. Shannon20150

3. ParthKohli

The seventh term is the product of the first term and the common ratio multiplied itself $$7-1=6$$ times

4. ParthKohli

@ParthKohli the sequence is not given as ap or gp

7. ParthKohli

@sambhav the term "common ratio" means it is a GP
