# Math Help - Is this a geometric progression?

1. ## Is this a geometric progression?

$\sqrt{\frac{1}{16}}, \sqrt{\frac{2}{16}},\sqrt{\frac{3}{16}}, \sqrt{\frac{4}{16}}, \sqrt{\frac{5}{16}}, \sqrt{\frac{6}{16}}...$

Is this a geometric progression?

Thanks

Is this a geometric progression?

Thanks
a geometric sequence has a common ratio ... $\frac{a_{n+1}}{a_n} = r$ for any $n$.

3. NO, this isn't a Geometric progression as there is no common ratio. i-e 2nd term/1st term IS NOT EQUAL TO thirdterm/second term.
