Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for a geometric series, multiply each term by the common ratio to get to the next term so, if the first term is (2) and the common ratio is (1/4), the second term is (2)*(1/4) and the third term is (2)*(1/4)*(1/4) and so on...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for a geometric sequence you can use the equation y=a1*(r)^(n1) where a1 is the first term and r is the rate and n is nth term that you want
