Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what does that even mean? ratio of a2/a1 like I don't even .. idk dude

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so 4 is multiplied each time to produce the next number in the sequence. for a geometric sequence you need to find the ratio in order to find the recursive formula. since the ratio is 4 your formula would be: a_n = a_n1 * 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the recursive formula for a geometric sequence is as such: \[a_n = a_{n1} * r \] where r is your ratio
