Is there a common ratio for the geometric sequence and what are the missing terms?
2, -4, -16, -36..

asked by Lola
  1. No common ratio, thus no geometric sequence

    however the 2nd, 3rd and 4th form the pattern:
    -(consecutive even)^2
    but then the first term does not follow this pattern.

    I don't see anything else
