Watch the mathematicians cheer up with our pdf worksheets on the first term and common ratio of a geometric sequence! It's easy to identify the first term, and the common ratio is the constant that divides any term by its previous term. For instance, let’s look at the geometric sequence 4, 4/3, 4/9, 4/27, … where the first term is 4. When each term is divided by the previous term, the quotient is 1/3. Therefore, the common ratio is 1/3. Featuring rational and irrational numbers, these printable tools are included with answer key to help students validate their answers.
