ALL CAPS SHORT TITLE 50 CHARACTERS OR LESS 1 Week One Assignment: Arithmetic and Geometric Sequence A sequence is an arrangement of numbers or mathematical objects. In this paper I will solve problems that involve both an arithmetic sequence and a geometric sequence. A geometric sequence is a progression of numbers that is multiplied or divided by from one term to the other using the same value each time. So 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, etc. An arithmetic sequence is also a series of number but unlike geometric sequence the pattern is increased or decreased by using addition or subtraction. Both sequences have number that is referred to as common but there is a difference between a common ratio and a common difference. A common difference is the number added or subtracted at each stage of an arithmetic sequence. While a common ratio is the number multiplied or divided at each stage of a geometric sequence. Question 35: A Person hired a firm to build a CB radio tower. The firm charges $100 for labor for the first 10 feet. After that, the cost of the labor for each succeeding 10 feet is $25 more than the proceeding 100 feet. That is, the next 10 feet will cost $125; the next 10 feet
