## Study Notes

### Geometric Sequence

- A geometric sequence is a sequence where each term is obtained by multiplying the previous term by a constant number.
- The common ratio of a geometric sequence can be found by dividing the second term by the first term.
- For example, if the first term is 2 and the second term is 6, the common ratio is 6/2 = 3.
- If the first term of a geometric sequence is 3 and the common ratio is 0.5, the third term is 3 Ã— 0.5 Ã— 0.5 = 0.75.

### Arithmetic Sequence

- An arithmetic sequence is a sequence where each term is obtained by adding a constant number to the previous term.
- The formula to find the nth term of an arithmetic sequence is an = a1 + (n-1)d, where a1 is the first term and d is the common difference.
- For example, if the first term of an arithmetic sequence is 3 and the common difference is 4, the 6th term is 3 + (6-1)4 = 3 + 20 = 23.
