In mathematics, a geometric progression, also known as a geometric sequence, is a sequence of non-zero numbers where each term after the first is found by multiplying the previous one by a fixed, non-zero number called the common ratio. A geometric sequence can be finite or infinite.
The n-th term an of a geometric sequence is given by:
a0— initial value;
r— common ratio;
n— 1, 2, 3 ...
Sum of n terms:
If the absolute value of the common ratio r is less than one, the geometric progression is called a decreasing geometric progression.
