Circle one: Arithmetic or Geometric

Fill in the value of d = _____ or r = ______

Identify the value of the 5th term: _________

Answer:geometric with r = 2

Step-by-step explanation:An arithmetic sequence has a common difference between consecutive terms

6 – 3 = 3

12 – 6 = 6

24 – 12 = 12

48 – 24 = 24

96 – 48 = 48

As we see the differences are not common, so not arithmetic

A geometric sequence has a common ratio between consecutive terms.

6 ÷ 3 = 2

12 ÷ 6 = 2

24 ÷ 12 = 2

48 ÷ 24 = 2

96 ÷ 48 = 2

There is a common ratio of 2, so sequence is geometric

with 5th term = 48
