- Geometric Sequence: sequence whose consecutive terms have a common ratio. Example: 3, 6, 12, 24, 48,... The terms have a common ratio of 2. The common ratio is the number r. To find the common ratio you use a n+1 a n

- Write an equation for the n th term of the geometric sequence 3, 12, 48, 192, 3 4
- Slide 10
- Geometric Mean: The terms between any two nonconsecutive terms of a geometric sequence. Ex. 2, 6, 18, 54, 162 6, 18, 54 are the Geometric Mean between 2 and 162
- Slide 11
- Find two geometric means between 2 and 54 -2, ____, ____, 54 -2 54 4 NA r The two geometric means are 6 and -18, since 2, 6, -18, 54 forms a geometric sequence
- Slide 12
- Geometric Series: An indicated sum of terms in a geometric sequence. Example: Geometric Sequence 3, 6, 12, 24, 48 VS Geometric Series 3 + 6 + 12 + 24 + 48

- Application: Suppose you e-mail a joke to three friends on Monday. Each of those friends sends the joke to three of their friends on Tuesday. Each person who receives the joke on Tuesday sends it to three more people on Wednesday, and so on. Monday Tuesday # New people that receive jokeDay of WeekTotal # of people that received joke Monday Tuesday Wednesday 33 93 + 9 = 12 27 12 + 27 = 39
