Each term in the geometric sequence is being multiplied by 2/3. It took me a second to get it, too!

 

Anyway, multiply 4/27 by 2/3:

 

\(\frac{4}{27}*\frac{2}{3}=\frac{8}{81}\)

TheXSquareFactor:

A slight correction: The term is: 4/27 x 2/3 = 8 / 81

Good catch! So many people would overlook that.
