well.... what's "r" or the common ratio? or what makes a geometric sequence a geometric sequence?
Umm.. what it is multiplied by? Isn't it like squares or something... I'm sorry I'm really bad at this stuff :(
let us make a sequence lemme start with the 1st term say 11 and use the common ratio "r" of.. say 2 if 11 is the first term, what's the 2nd term?

22?
yeap... so... notice \(\begin{array}{llll} term&value \\\hline\\ a_1&11\\ a_2&a_1\cdot r\implies 11\cdot 2\implies 22 \end{array}\qquad meaning\qquad a_2=a_1\cdot r\qquad thus \\ \quad \\\\ \quad \\ \cfrac{a_2}{a_1}=r\qquad or\qquad \cfrac{\cancel{22}}{\cancel{11}}=r\implies 2=r\)
so.. to find "r", simply divide the "following term" by the term behind it :)
Oh! Awesome that is much easier than I thought thank you so much!
to find the 9th term, well \(\bf \large a_{\color{brown}{ n}}=a_1\cdot r^{{\color{brown}{ n}}-1}\qquad \qquad a_{\color{brown}{ 9}}=a_1\cdot r^{{\color{brown}{ 9}}-1}\)
so I got 4,374
