well a term in a geometric series is \[a_{n} = a_{1} r^{n -1}\] you have the 1st term -2 you need to find the common ratio r... is can be done by comparing terms \[\frac{a_{2}}{a_{1}} = \frac{a_{3}}{a_{2}}\] hope this helps

I am a parent trying to help my child and I don't understand this.... she has the answer but I don't know if its right
what answer does she have..?
c
each term is being multiplied by -4 so term 2 = -4 x term 1 8 = -4 x -2 if its correct try it with term 3 term 3 = -4 x term 2 -32 = -4 x 8 is it correct.. hope this helps...
so is C right?
