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

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
