# The first term of a geometric sequence with common ratio 7 is 1. What is the 6th term?

Sep 11, 2016

The 6th term is $16 , 807$.

#### Explanation:

Use the formula ${t}_{n} = a \times {r}^{n - 1}$.

${t}_{6} = 1 \times {7}^{6 - 1}$

${t}_{6} = 1 \times {7}^{5}$

${t}_{6} = 16 , 807$

Hopefully this helps!
