A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How can you tell if a infinite geometric series has a sum or not?

The geometric series is, itself, a sum of a geometric progression. The sum of an infinite geometric sequence exists if the common ratio has an absolute value which is less than 1, and not if it is 1 or greater.

How do arithmetic and geometric sequences compare to continuous functions?

an arithmetic sequeunce does not have the sum to infinty, and a geometric sequence has.

Is the Fibonacci sequence geometric?

No, but it can be expressed as the sum of two geometric sequences. F_n = a^n + b^n a = (1+sqrt{5})/2 b = (1-sqrt{5})/2

What is the formula to find the sum of a geometric sequence?

The formula to find the sum of a geometric sequence is adding a + ar + ar2 + ar3 + ar4. The sum, to n terms, is given byS(n) = a*(1 - r^n)/(1 - r) or, equivalently, a*(r^n - 1)/(r - 1)

Is geometric sequence a sequence in which each successive terms of the sequence are in equal ratio?

Yes, that's what a geometric sequence is about.

What is a shifted geometric sequence?

a sequence of shifted geometric numbers

What describes the sequence 1 1 2 3 5 is it arithmetic or geometric?

It is an arithmetic sequence. To differentiate arithmetic from geometric sequences, take any three numbers within the sequence. If the middle number is the average of the two on either side then it is an arithmetic sequence. If the middle number squared is the product of the two on either side then it is a geometric sequence. The sequence 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 and so on is the Fibonacci series, which is an arithmetic sequence, where the next number in the series is the sum of the previous two numbers. Thus F(n) = F(n-1) + F(n-2). Note that the Fibonacci sequence always begins with the two numbers 0 and 1, never 1 and 1.

What is the sum of the geometric sequence 8comma negative16comma 32 dot dot dot if there are 15 terms?

The sum of a geometric sequence is a(1-rn)/(1-r) In this case, a = 8, r = -2 and n=15 So the sum is 8(1-(-2)15)/(1+2) =8(1+32768)/3 =87,384 So the sum of the first 15 terms of the sequence 8, -16, 32, -64.... is 87,384.

What is the sum of the geometric sequence 4 12 36 if there are 9 terms?

Un = 4*3n-1 S9 = 39364

What is the difference between a geometric sequence and a recursive formula?

The two are totally unrelated.

Who invented geometric sequence series?

antonette taño invented geometric sequence since 1990's

What is a geometric rule for pattern?

Not sure about this question. But, a geometric sequence is a sequence of numbers such that the ratio of any two consecutive numbers is a constant, known as the "common ratio". A geometric sequence consists of a set of numbers of the form a, ar, ar2, ar3, ... arn, ... where r is the common ratio.

Is a geometric progression a quadratic sequence?

A geometric sequence is : a•r^n while a quadratic sequence is a• n^2 + b•n + c So the answer is no, unless we are talking about an infinite sequence of zeros which strictly speaking is both a geometric and a quadratic sequence.

Descending geometric sequence?

A descending geometric sequence is a sequence in which the ratio between successive terms is a positive constant which is less than 1.

The sum to three terms of geometric series is 9 and its sum to infinity is 8. What could you deduce about the common ratio. Why. Find the first term and common ratio?

The geometric sequence with three terms with a sum of nine and the sum to infinity of 8 is -9,-18, and 36. The first term is -9 and the common ratio is -2.

What is the sequence of numbers that are both geometric and arithmetic?

It is called arithmetico-geometric sequence. I have added a link with some nice information about them.

What is the formula for sequence sum?

There are different answers depending upon whether the sequence is an arithmetic progression, a geometric progression, or some other sequence. For example, the sequence 4/1 - 4/3 + 4/5 - 4/7 adds to pi

How do you get the Fibonacci sequence?

Start with 1 and 2. Then each number in the Fibonacci sequence is the sum of the previous two numbers in the sequence.

What is the term for A sequence of numbers in which the ratio between two consecutive numbers is a constant?

A geometric series.

What is mathematical sequence?

Sequences are a group of numbers that follow a certain pattern. There are two kinds of sequences, the arithematic sequence and geometric sequence. Arithematic sequence follows through addition (and subtraction). Geometric sequence follows throug multiplication (and division). Arithematic Sequence Example : 1, 6, 11, 16, 21 The pattern follows an addition of 5. Geometric Sequence Example : 1, 3, 9, 27, 81 The pattern follows a multiplication of 3

What is ascending geometric sequence?

A geometric sequence is : a•r^n which is ascending if a is greater than 0 and r is greater than 1.
