well what are the following equal to term-previous term: -2-1= 4-(-2)= -8-4=
if they are all the same number then the sequence does have a common difference and whatever number that is is the common difference
did you actually perform the differences above?
-2-1=? 4-(-2)=? -8-4=?
so you got each one of those is -2?
right the answer is no the sequence doesn't have a common difference because -2-1 is not the same as 4-(-2) or the same as -8-4
but i thought because when multiplied by -2 idk i thought multiplying made sense
common difference assumes you have an arithemetic sequence and we don't
common ratio assumes we have a geometric sequence which we do
the word that makes the whole thing false is the difference word
if they said common ratio then it would have been true
ohh , thank you so much .
since term/previous term =-2 that is -2/1=4/-2=-8/4=-2
