# How do you find the next three terms in the geometric sequence -16, 4, , , ... ?

##### 2 Answers

Find the common ratio

#### Explanation:

The general form for a geometric sequence with the first term

As the first two terms of the geometric sequence given are

Then, to find

Thus the next three terms in the sequence will be

#### Explanation:

Since it is a geometric sequence

So if

Hence the 3rd term,

Similarly
