Question:

find the general term of Un which as

u3=3 and u9=3/8

--> i am looking for the common ratio atm and this is what i did

u3=u1r^2=3 (1)

u9=u1r^(-5/8)=3/8 (2)

--> (2)/(1)

u1r^(-5/8)/ u1r^2 =3/8 / 3

r^(-21/8) = 1/8

r = (-21/8)* root 1/8

But i don't know how to simplify it from there..

The answer said 1/root2

but i don't know how to get that

Help please?

thank you
