2 9 3 8 Terms of a Geometric Sequence Determine the common ratio, the fifth term, and the n t h term of the geometric sequence.

2 , 6 , 18 , 54 , ...

To determine

The common ratio, the fifth term, and the nth term of the geometric sequence, 2,6,18,54,...

Explanation

Approach:

(1) The nth term of a geometric sequence is defined as an=arn1.

(2) The common ratio r of the geometric sequence is calculated by the ratio anan1.

Calculation:

Clearly a=2.

Calculate the ratio of any two consecutive terms.
