Quandaries
and Queries 

Hi, My name is Lesa and my daughter who is a senior has a tough question that I have no clue on how to solve. Can you help us? 1. Find a formula for the geometric sequence: (√3  √2), (4  √6), (6√3  2√2), … 2. Find the sum of the first five terms 

Hi Lesa, A geometric sequence has the form
a is the first term and r is the common ratio. If your sequence is a geometric sequence then
and
Thus
Thus
Now check that the sequence is a geometric series by verifying that
