## Find Geometric Pattern 3

### 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.
