You can put this solution on YOUR website! Identify the 9th term in the geometric sequence.
972, 324, 108, 36,...
First we need to find the common ratio:
r = 324/972 = 1/3
So the n-th term in the sequence is:
The rest is just calculator arithmetic. Hint: Your calculator is going to give you a repeating decimal for an answer. Multiply the calculator result by 3, then do it again, and continue until the calculator gives you a whole number. That is the numerator of your fractional answer. 3 raised to the power of the number of times you multiplied by 3 is the denominator.
My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
