. Tell whether the sequence 1/3,0,1,-2… is arithmetic, geometric, or neither
A. neither; 7, -20, 61 B. geometric;7, -20, 61 C. arithmetic; -1/3,1 1/3,3 D. geometric;-3 1/3,-5 5/9,-9 7/27
just a barely educated guess but i say neither Plug them into your formulas to find out for sure
It's definitely not arithmetic, since the differences are not common. It's not geometric because the ratio of the two successive terms does not even exist.
The ratio of the two successive terms \(1\) and \(0\) does not exist.
