# The formula for a geometric sequence is an = 2(4)^(n-1) what is the 3rd term of the sequence?

Jul 16, 2016

${a}_{3} = 32$
The given $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{nth term formula}}$ enables us to find any term in the specified geometric sequence.
$\Rightarrow {a}_{3} = 2 {\left(4\right)}^{3 - 1} = 2 \times {4}^{2} = 32$
