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

    What pattern do you see?

  • Algebra -

    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?

    You're right! :-)

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

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

    Ahh -- thank you for clarifying this. And you've very welcome, Chelsea.
