Answer:

#9963#

Explanation:

We can find the common ratio of the geometric sequence by taking the ratio of any term with the preceding term.

So in this case we can say that the ratio #r=T_32/T_31=1107/123=9#.

Consequently, the next term will be the previous term multiplied by the common ratio.

So in this case, #T_33=9*T_32#

#=9xx1107#

#=9963#
