Question: What do we have to multiply by to get ? Answer: To find out we divide 150 by 100 and get 1.5. Question: What do we have to multiply by to get ? Answer: To find out we divide 225 by 150 and get 1.5 Question: What do we have to multiply by to get ? Answer: To find out we divide 337.5 by 225 and get 1.5 Question: What do we have to multiply by to get ? Answer: To find out we divide 150 by 100 and get 1.5 So we generalize: So in each case above, what did we have to multiply by to get ? Answer: We had to multiply it by 1.5. What did we start with? Answer: We started with . So how do we write the recursive formula: Answer: ---------------------- b. 73.4375, 29.375, 11.75, 4.7, 1.88... Do it exactly the same way: Answer ----------------------- c. 80.00, 82.40, 84.87, 87.42, 90.04.... Do it exactly the same way, except we must always round to the nearest hundredth: Answer ----------------------- d. 208.00, 191.36, 176.05, 161.97 Same as c: Answer ----------------------- Edwin```
