"Find s_3 , the third term in the series which corresponds to the geometric sequence which has a = 8 and r = 1/4" I'm not sure what the method is in order to work out what s_3 is..

The formula for finding the nth Term of a Geometric Sequence is a_n = a_1*r^(n-1) I am going to just assume that you made a typo and that your a = 8 is really a_1 = 8. If not please disregard. a_3 = 8*(1/4)^(2) a_3 = 8*(1/16) a_3 = 1/2
