    formula is off a bit formula is this a*r^(n-1) = nth term so first term is -6 cuzz if we plug it in a * r^( 1-1) = -6 ^ that is 0 a * r^0 =-6 ^ that is 1 cuzz anynumber to the 0th is 1 just a rule a=-6 so now we know a and plug it into the a6 6th term a *r^(n-1) = nth term -6 *r^(6-1) = -6144 -6 * r^5 = 6144 sfr r = -4 so now we have all variables a = - 6 and r is 4 so plug it into formula a*r^(n-1) = nth term -6*4^(9-1)= -393216

    The problem is that someone might not always be here for you so you need the answer for confirmation.
