# Geometric progression 2

There is geometric sequence with a1=5.7 and quotient q=-2.5. Calculate a17.

Correct result:

a17 =  13271346.69

#### Solution:

${a}_{17}=5.7\cdot \left(-2.5{\right)}^{17-1}\doteq 13271346.69$ We would be pleased if you find an error in the word problem, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies and send it to us. Thank you! ## Next similar math problems:
