Best Answer

It is a*r^4 where a is the first term and r is the common ratio (the ratio between a term and the one before it).

How do you determine if a sequence is geometric?

A sequence is geometric if each term is found by mutiplying the previous term by a certain number (known as the common ratio). 2,4,8,16, --> here the common ratio is 2.

Can you explain a pattern in which 14 is the fifth term in a sequence of ten numbers?

It is not possible to explain because you have not specified the nature of the sequence. A sequence can be an arithmetic, or geometric progression, increasing or decreasing. Or it can be a polynomial or power progression, again increasing or decreasing. Or it can be a sequence of random numbers.

Determine if the sequence below is arithmetic or geometric and determine the common difference/ ratio in simplest form 300,30,3?

This is a geometric sequence since there is a common ratio between each term. In this case, multiplying the previous term in the sequence by 10.

What does geometric sequence?

You mean what IS a geometric sequence? It's when the ratio of the terms is constant, meaning: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16... The ratio of one term to the term directly following it is always 1:2, or .5. So like, instead of an arithmetic sequence, where you're adding a specific amount each time, in a geometric sequence, you're multiplying by that term.
