C.geometric, –48, 64, –80

.DThe sequence is neither geometric nor arithmetic.

I think it's B...?

81, 27, 9, 3, . . .

A.arithmetic, 0, –3, –6

B.geometic, 0, –3, –6

C.geometric, 1,1/3 , 1/9

D.The sequence is neither geometric nor arithmetic.

I know they are dividing by 3...but I am not sure if this is A or D...?

**Reiny**, Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 11:40amIf for your given terms, the first term is -4

then it would be geometric.

Probably just a typo, if so

then r = -2 , and your choice of B would be correct

for the second, it is geometric , and yes, they are dividing by 3, so r = 1/3

let's keep going

81 27 9 3 1 1/3 1/9

so it is C
