# Math Help - Geometric Sequence

1. ## Geometric Sequence

$x+3$, $x$, and $x-5$ are three terms in a geometric sequence. Use the concept of common ratio to determine the value of the three terms.

Help?

Thanks!

2. You know that in a geometric sequence, there is a factor in which you multiply each term to get the next one. So, if you divide two consecutive terms, you will get this factor. So:

$\frac{x}{x+3} = \frac{x-5}{x}$
