Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4formula is off a bit formula is this a*r^(n1) = nth term so first term is 6 cuzz if we plug it in a * r^( 11) = 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^(n1) = nth term 6 *r^(61) = 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^(n1) = nth term 6*4^(91)= 393216
