## Question:

In a geometric sequence, the fourth term is 18 and the seventh term is {eq}\frac{243}{32} {/eq}. Find the first and nth terms.

## Geometric Series:

Suppose the first term of a geometric sequence is a, and the common ratio is r; we use the below formula to indicate the nth term of a sequence.

{eq}{T_n} = a{r^{n - 1}} {/eq}

So, if we know the first term and common ratio (ratio of a term and its previous term) to define any term of the geometric sequence.
