1. ## Sequences

OKay so i did not get this question. And i will appreciate it if someone tells me how to do it.

use the given two terms of each geometric sequences to write the expression to the nth term:

Term 4 = 45 Term 6= 180

There is some application involved and it involves linear systems.

So thanks!

the nth term of a geometric series is given by: $\displaystyle a_n = ar^{n - 1}$ for $\displaystyle n \in \mathbb{N} = \{ 1,2,3,4, ... \}$

where $\displaystyle a$ is the first term, and $\displaystyle r$ is the common ratio

thus, $\displaystyle a_4 = ar^3 = 45$

and $\displaystyle a_6 = ar^5 = 180$

thus we have two simultaneous equations here, we can solve for $\displaystyle a$ and $\displaystyle r$. then we can plug that into the general form to find the nth term

can you continue?

3. Thx alot, and yes i can continue. Amazing.
