 Question 333200: What are the next three terms of the geometric sequence 5, 15, 45, ? Thank youFound 2 solutions by benazir.sj@gmail.com, ej_03:Answer by benazir.sj@gmail.com(109)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!the general form of geometric sequence is a,ar,ar^2,ar^3......... where a is the first number r is the common ratio given 5, 15, 45 a=5 and r =3 a =5 ar =5*3=15 ar^2=5*3^2 =5*9 =45 ar^3 =5*3^3 =5*27 =135 ar^4 =5*3^4 =5*81=405 ar^5=5*3^5 =5*243=1215 therefore the geometric sequence are 5,15,45,135,405,1215...
