21. 21. An infinite sequence is a function whose domain is the set of positive integers. a1, a2, a3, a4, . . . , an, . . . terms The first three terms of the sequence an = 2n2 are a1 = 2(1)2 = 2 a2 = 2(2)2 = 8 finite sequence a3 = 2(3)2 = 18. 05/03/214 TN MBHAMALI 201201797 21
22. 22. A sequence is geometric if the ratios of consecutive terms are the same. 2, 8, 32, 128, 512, . . . 8 2 32 8 4 512 128 05/03/2014 4 128 32 geometric sequence 4 4 The common ratio, r, is 4. TN MBHAMALI 201201797 22
23. 23. The nth term of a geometric sequence has the form an = a1rn - 1 where r is the common ratio of consecutive terms of the sequence. r a1 = 15 75 15 5 15, 75, 375, 1875, . . . a2 = 15(5) a3 = a4 = 15(52) 15(53) The nth term is 15(5n-1). 05/03/2014 TN MBHAMALI 201201797 23
24. 24. Example: Find the 9th term of the geometric sequence 7, 21, 63, . . . a1 = 7 r 21 7 3 an = a1rn – 1 = 7(3)n – 1 a9 = 7(3)9 – 1 = 7(3)8 = 7(6561) = 45,927 The 9th term is 45,927. 05/03/2014 TN MBHAMALI 201201797 24
25. 25. The sum of the first n terms of a sequence is represented by summation notation. upper limit of summation n ai a1 a2 a3 a4  an i 1 lower limit of summation index of summation 5 4 n 1 n 4 4 1 4 16 2 4 64 3 4 4 256 4 5 1024 1364 05/03/2014 TN MBHAMALI 201201797 25
26. 26. The sum of a finite geometric sequence is given by n Sn a1r n a1 1 r . 1 r i 1 i 1 5 + 10 + 20 + 40 + 80 + 160 + 320 + 640 = ? n=8 r a1 = 5 n Sn 05/03/2014 a1 1 r 1 r 8 5 1 2 1 2 TN MBHAMALI 5 1 256 1 2 201201797 10 5 2 5 255 1 1275 26
27. 27. The sum of the terms of an infinite geometric sequence is called a geometric series. If |r| < 1, then the infinite geometric series a1 + a1r + a1r2 + a1r3 + . . . + a1rn-1 + . . . has the sum S a1r i 0 If r 05/03/2014 a1 i 1 r . 1 , then the series does not have a su m.

29. 29.  Geometric Sequences and Series A geometric sequence is a sequence in which each term after the first is obtained by multiplying the preceding term by a constant nonzero real number. 1, 2, 4, 8, 16 … is an example of a geometric sequence with first term 1 and each subsequent term is 2 times the term preceding it. The multiplier from each term to the next is called the common ratio and is usually denoted by r. 05/03/2014 TN MBHAMALI 201201797 29
30. 30.  Finding the Common Ratio In a geometric sequence, the common ratio can be found by dividing any term by the term preceding it. The geometric sequence 2, 8, 32, 128, … has common ratio r = 4 since 8 128 2 05/03/2014 32 8 32 TN MBHAMALI ... 4 201201797 30

32. 32.  Using the Formula for the nth Term Example Find a5 and an for the geometric sequence 4, –12, 36, –108 , … Solution Here a1= 4 and r = 36/ –12 = – 3. Using n 1 n=5 in the formula a n a1 r a5 4 ( 3) 5 1 4 ( 3) 4 324 In general an 05/03/2014 a1 r n 1 TN MBHAMALI 4 ( 3) n 1 201201797 32
33. 33.  Modeling a Population of Fruit Flies Example A population of fruit flies grows in such a way that each generation is 1.5 times the previous generation. There were 100 insects in the first generation. How many are in the fourth generation. Solution The populations form a geometric sequence with a1= 100 and r = 1.5 . Using n=4 in the formula for an gives a4 a1 r 3 100(1.5) 3 337.5 or about 338 insects in the fourth generation. 05/03/2014 TN MBHAMALI 201201797 33
34. 34.  Geometric Series A geometric series is the sum of the terms of a geometric sequence . In the fruit fly population model with a1 = 100 and r = 1.5, the total population after four generations is a geometric series: a1 a2 100 a3 a4 100(1.5) 100(1.5) 2 100(1.5) 3 813 05/03/2014 TN MBHAMALI 201201797 34
