What are the first five terms of the geometric sequence

Write a recursive formula for the geometric sequence

Write an explicit formula for the geometric sequence

${a}_{n}=-\frac{1}{5}\cdot {\left(\frac{1}{3}\right)}^{n-1}$

How many terms are in the finite geometric sequence

## Series and Their Notation

Use summation notation to write the sum of terms $\frac{1}{2}m+5$ from $m=0$ to $m=5.$

$\sum _{m=0}^{5}\left(\frac{1}{2}m+5\right).$

Use summation notation to write the sum that results from adding the number $13$ twenty times.

Use the formula for the sum of the first $n$ terms of an arithmetic series to find the sum of the first eleven terms of the arithmetic series 2.5, 4, 5.5, … .

${S}_{11}=110$

A ladder has $15$ tapered rungs, the lengths of which increase by a common difference. The first rung is 5 inches long, and the last rung is 20 inches long. What is the sum of the lengths of the rungs?

Use the formula for the sum of the first n terms of a geometric series to find ${S}_{9}$ for the series

${S}_{9}\approx 23.95$

The fees for the first three years of a hunting club membership are given in [link] . If fees continue to rise at the same rate, how much will the total cost be for the first ten years of membership?

Year Membership Fees
1 $1500 2$1950
3 $2535 Find the sum of the infinite geometric series $\sum _{k=1}^{\infty }45\cdot {\left(-\frac{1}{3}\right)}^{k-1}.$ $S=\frac{135}{4}$ A ball has a bounce-back ratio of $\frac{3}{5}$ the height of the previous bounce. Write a series representing the total distance traveled by the ball, assuming it was initially dropped from a height of 5 feet. What is the total distance? ( Hint : the total distance the ball travels on each bounce is the sum of the heights of the rise and the fall.) Alejandro deposits$80 of his monthly earnings into an annuity that earns 6.25% annual interest, compounded monthly. How much money will he have saved after 5 years?

$5,617.61 The twins Sarah and Scott both opened retirement accounts on their 21 st birthday. Sarah deposits$4,800.00 each year, earning 5.5% annual interest, compounded monthly. Scott deposits \$3,600.00 each year, earning 8.5% annual interest, compounded monthly. Which twin will earn the most interest by the time they are $55$ years old? How much more?

Outside temperatures over the course of a day can be modeled as a sinusoidal function. Suppose the high temperature of ?105°F??105°F? occurs at 5PM and the average temperature for the day is ?85°F.??85°F.? Find the temperature, to the nearest degree, at 9AM.
if you have the amplitude and the period and the phase shift ho would you know where to start and where to end?
