The General term (nth Term) of an Geometric Sequence is: What does the nth term mean? What can

we use it for?

Un = ____________ where n is _______________

a is _____________

r is _____________

D) Using the nth Term – In your home groups of 4, select a number 1-4.

Show this Geometric arithmetic? For the geometric sequence: 5, -10, 20, -40, 80,…..

Problem 3 Problem 4

Determine the first 5 terms of the sequence: For the geometric sequence: 3, 3.6, 4.32, 5.184,……

Un = -2 . 3n Determine U13

Problems - Exercise 5D.2 page 139 – Questions; 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

Scenario: If the $5000 is invested for 5 years at 6% interest, compounded yearly. How much will this investment

compound to at the end of this period?

Use any math you are familiar with to determine the worth of the principal after 5 years.

= ______________

= 5000 x 1.062

= ______________

= 5000 x 1.06

= ______________

Compound Interest forms a Geometric Sequence. List the sequence from above.

a = _____________________________

r = ______________________________

a) From this scenario, determine the value of the investment after 18 years.

b) How many years will it take for the investment to be worth more than $16 200?

Lets Try

a)

Geometric Sequences

Use geometric sequences to determine this question (think clearly and carefully first)

$400 is invested for 25 years at the rate of 8% p.a. Interest is compounded yearly. Determine the value of the

investment at the end of the investment period.
