The common ratio r of a geometric sequence satisfies the quadratic equation 2r squared - 3r -2 = 0. If the sum to infinity of the same sequence is 6, explain why, in this case, r can only take on one value, and hence state the common ratio, r. Also, show that the first term 'a' of this sequence is 9.

Thanks so much xx
