Hello, can someone please help me find the formula for the sequence?

I know the difference is (-2/3), but I can't seem to figure out the formula.

Thanks,

The

*ratio*is (-2/3)

the nth term is given by $\displaystyle (-8)* \cdot (-2/3)^{n-1}$ - Sep 22nd 2011, 05:14 PMPlatoRe: Formula for the sequence

Hi,

The nth term is given by Tn=a+(n-1)d

=-8+(n-1)(-2/3)

=-11/3(2+n). - Sep 22nd 2011, 05:25 PMl flipboi lRe: Formula for the sequence
