Find the next two numbers in the geometric sequence:
28,14,7...

Algebra 
Ms. Sue,
What pattern do you see?

Algebra 
Chelsea,
The only pattern I see is 7*2=14 and 14*2=28
so each term is multiplied 2 times. But when it gets to the 7 don't you have to divide the term by 2 because you can't multiply it? so the answer would be 3.5 and 1.75. right?

Ms. Sue,
You're right! :)

Algebra 
Chelsea,
Okay, that's what I thought. But I have to enter my answers onto an online service and it says my answers are wrong.

Algebra 
Chelsea,
Thank you Ms. Sue again. I just needed to change the answer to a fraction.

Algebra 
Ms. Sue,
Ahh  thank you for clarifying this. And you've very welcome, Chelsea.
