I am just thinking. You'd have to do some kind of system of equations right?

Correct. You would want to find d and a1 by knowing that a3=-96 , and thus n=3, and a6=-6144 and thus n=6.

you would divide n'th term formulas for 3rd and 6th term this will give you common ratio=r then using any of the n'th term formula you can get 'a' also

a3 = a1 r^2 a6 = a1 r^5 if you divide these 2, you get r^3 and hence 'r'

then using a3 = a1 r^2 you can get a1 also

oops, I did t again. I used arithmetic when I should have used geometric. Skip my posts, and go with hartnn's!
