Hi good people!,

 

How do I go about finding the general term for the following sequence:

 

\({1\over3};{8\over9};1;{64\over81}\)

 

I have tested the sequence for Arithmetic, Geometric and Quadratic...but cannot determine which...please help...

Try the following:

 

\(1^3\frac{1}{3}; 2^3\frac{1}{3}^2;3^3\frac{1}{3}^3;4^3\frac{1}{3}^4;...etc\)

Hi good people!,
How do I go about finding the general term for the following sequence:
{1\over3};{8\over9};1;{64\over81}

\(\displaystyle {1\over3};{8\over9};1;{64\over81}\)

 

\(\huge{ \begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline a_1 &=& {1\over3} \\\\ a_2 &=& {8\over9} \\\\ a_3 &=& 1 \\\\ a_4 &=& {64\over81} \\\\ \ldots \\\\ a_n &=& \dfrac{n^3}{3^n} \\ \hline \end{array} }\)
