## GEOMETRICPROGRESSION

### Geometric progression

In mathematics, a**geometric progression**, also known as a

**geometric sequence**, is a sequence of numbers where each term after the first is found by multiplying the previous one by a fixed, non-zero number called the

*common ratio*. For example, the sequence 2, 6, 18, 54, ... is a geometric progression with common ratio 3. Similarly 10, 5, 2.5, 1.25, ... is a geometric sequence with common ratio 1/2. The sum of the terms of a geometric progression, or of an initial segment of a geometric progression, is known as a geometric series.
