HELP PLZ You have two biological parents. Each of these parents has two biological parents of their own (your grandparents). Each grandparent has two parents of their own, and so on. This set of relationships can be illustrated by a family tree, as shown in the illustration. (M stands for mother, F stands for father, and G stands for "great" or "grand." That is, GGF is a great-grandfather.)

    a geometric sequence is \(a_n=a_1r^{n-1}\). Since you are the first one \(a_1=1\) and since the number in each generation is twice the number in the previous generation \(r=2\). Write a formula for the sequence and find \(a_8\)
