Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no.... common ratio = next term/ previous term a1 and a6 are not consecutive terms

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you'd find common ratio =r by, an = a1 r^{n1} here, and only for this, n=6 a1=6 always an=a6 =6144

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so n = 6 temporarily?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, only to find the value of 'r'

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ratio is not 6144 ratio = r is what you have to find

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its 1024 =r^5 not 1024^5

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(1024 =r^5 \) taking 5th root on both sides, \(\large r= \sqrt[5]{1024}=..?\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1try this : \(r^5=1024=2^{10} \\ r^5= (2^2)^5 \implies r=2^2=4\)
