Find each sum:

4, 12, 36, 108,... A sequence is geometric if each term is obtained by multiplying the previous term by the same number called the common ratio, r. The above sequence can be written as: Any term in a geometric sequence can be found using: Practice #6: p. 955 1-23odds

Ex. Find the common ratio, the fifth term, and the nth term formula for the following geometric sequence:
