Re: Geometric sequenceHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130130 22:45:13

Re: Geometric sequence
That is not correct. 2^7 is not 49 and 2^10 is not 100... The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #5 20130131 01:25:14

Re: Geometric sequenceWell, to identify and prove a geometric progression the following can be used: #7 20130131 03:01:28
Re: Geometric sequencehi 3rdMath As you have just 4 terms and no general term you will have to show that The value for this constant has already been given in earlier posts. Bob You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei
