A sequence has t(sub1) = 5 and t(sub2) = 15
a. if the sequence is geometric, what is the common ratio? What do t(sub3) and t(sub4) equal?
b. if the sequence is arithmetic, what is the common ratio? What do t(sub3) and t(sub4) equal?

a. r=3, so you have 5,15,45,135,...
b. d=10, do 5,15,25,35,...

Sequence T1 is obtained by adding the corresponding terms of S(sub) and S(sub2). so that T(sub1) = {2.6, 3.39, 4.297, 5.3561, . . .}. We shall write T(sub1) = S(sub1) + S(sub2) to convey the addition of S(sub1) and S(sub2) in this …
