|3. DEFINING GEOMETRIC PROGRESSION|
A geometric progression could be defined as a sequence of numbers where the quotient (or common ratio) of any two consecutive terms is always the same.
|4.- In this window you
can form geometric progressions by just indicating the first term
and the common ratio.
5.- Form five progression. Make sure that the first term is different in each example and that the common ratio is positive and greater than 1 in some cases, positive but less than 1 in others and negative in others.
6.- Write down the first five terms and the 10th, 20th and 50th term in each sequence in your exercise book.
7.- Choose one of your progressions and try to find a formula which allows you to obtain any term by knowing its position in the sequence (n).
8.- Now try to do the same for the other four progressions.
