1 3330_0903qxd /5/05 :3 AM Page 663 Sectio Geometric Sequeces ad Series 663 Geometric Sequeces ad Series What you should lear Recogize, write, ad fid the th terms of geometric sequeces Fid th partial sums of geometric sequeces Fid the sum of a ifiite geometric series Use geometric sequeces to model ad solve real-life problems Why you should lear it Geometric sequeces ca be used to model ad solve reallife problems For istace, i Exercise 99 o page 670, you will use a geometric sequece to model the populatio of Chia Geometric Sequeces I Sectio 9, you leared that a sequece whose cosecutive terms have a commo differece is a arithmetic sequece I this sectio, you will study aother importat type of sequece called a geometric sequece Cosecutive terms of a geometric sequece have a commo ratio Defiitio of Geometric Sequece A sequece is geometric if the ratios of cosecutive terms are the same So, the sequece a, a, a3, a4,, a is geometric if there is a umber r such that a r, a a3 r, a a4 r, a3 r 0 ad so the umber r is the commo ratio of the sequece Example Examples of Geometric Sequeces a The sequece whose th term is is geometric For this sequece, the commo ratio of cosecutive terms is, 4, 8, 6,,, 4 Bob Krist/Corbis Begi with b The sequece whose th term is 4 3 is geometric For this sequece, the commo ratio of cosecutive terms is 3, 36, 08, 34,, 4 3, Begi with 36 3 c The sequece whose th term is 3 is geometric For this sequece, the commo ratio of cosecutive terms is 3,,,,,, Begi with Now try Exercise The sequece, 4, 9, 6,, whose th term is, is ot geometric The ratio of the secod term to the first term is a 4 4 a a 9 but the ratio of the third term to the secod term is 3 a 4

2 3330_0903qxd /5/05 :3 AM Page Chapter 9 Sequeces, Series, ad Probability I Example, otice that each of the geometric sequeces has a th term that is of the form ar, where the commo ratio of the sequece is r A geometric sequece may be thought of as a expoetial fuctio whose domai is the set of atural umbers The th Term of a Geometric Sequece The th term of a geometric sequece has the form a a r where r is the commo ratio of cosecutive terms of the sequece So, every geometric sequece ca be writte i the followig form a, a, a 3, a 4, a 5,, a, a a a a r 4 r 3 r, a r,,,,, a r, Additioal Example Write the first five terms of the geometric sequece whose first term is a 9 ad whose commo ratio is r 3 9, 3,, a 3, 9 FIGURE If you kow the th term of a geometric sequece, you ca fid the th term by multiplyig by r That is, a ra Example Fidig the Terms of a Geometric Sequece Write the first five terms of the geometric sequece whose first term is a 3 ad whose commo ratio is r The graph the terms o a set of coordiate axes Startig with 3, repeatedly multiply by to obtai the followig a 3 st term a 3 6 d term a 3 3 3rd term a th term a th term Figure 95 shows the first five terms of this geometric sequece Now try Exercise Example 3 Fidig a Term of a Geometric Sequece Fid the 5th term of the geometric sequece whose first term is 0 ad whose commo ratio is 05 a 5 a r Formula for geometric sequece Substitute 0 for a, 05 for r, ad 5 for Use a calculator Now try Exercise 7
