## Find Geometric Pattern 1

### Find Missing Numbers: Learn

In previous lessons you worked with arithmetic sequences. How to find a missing number in an arithmetic sequence:

• Determine if the order of numbers is ascending (getting larger in value) or descending (becoming smaller in value).
• Find the difference between numbers that are next to each other.
• Use the difference between numbers to find the missing number.

In these lessons we focus on the geometric sequence. How to find a missing number in a geometric sequence:

• Determine if the order of numbers is ascending (getting larger in value) or descending (becoming smaller in value).
• Find the quotient between numbers that are next to each other.
• Use the quotient as a divisor or factor to find the missing number.

Example: Find the missing number: 128, 32, ?, 2

• The order of numbers is descending (going down).
• The quotient between numbers is 128 ÷ 32 = 4
• Since the order is descending divide 32 by 4. The missing number may be 8.
• The missing number is 8 since dividing by 4 results in the last number 2.
