# Lesson 1The In-BetweenersDevelop Understanding

The sequences below exemplify a multiplicative (geometric) pattern. Fill in the missing values on the table and then write an explicit equation for the pattern.

### 1.

 Term Value $1\text{st}$ $2\text{nd}$ $3\text{rd}$ $4\text{th}$ $5\text{th}$ $6\text{th}$ $7\text{th}$ $8\text{th}$ $2$ $64$

Equation:

### 2.

 Term Value $1\text{st}$ $2\text{nd}$ $3\text{rd}$ $4\text{th}$ $5\text{th}$ $6\text{th}$ $7\text{th}$ $8\text{th}$ $360$ $45$

Equation:

### 3.

 Term Value $1\text{st}$ $2\text{nd}$ $3\text{rd}$ $4\text{th}$ $5\text{th}$ $6\text{th}$ $7\text{th}$ $8\text{th}$ $-3$ $-384$

Equation:

### 4.

 Term Value $1\text{st}$ $2\text{nd}$ $3\text{rd}$ $4\text{th}$ $5\text{th}$ $6\text{th}$ $7\text{th}$ $8\text{th}$ $972$ $4$

Rewrite each of the square roots below by removing repeated factors from under the square root.

For example, .

## Set

Fill in the missing values of the table based on the growth that is described, then create the explicit equation for the table.

### 9.

The growth in the table is tripled at each whole year.

 Years Bacteria $0$ $\frac{1}{2}$ $1$ $\frac{3}{2}$ $2$ $\frac{5}{2}$ $3$ $\frac{7}{2}$ $4$ $2$ $6$

Explicit equation:

### 10.

The growth in the table is triple at each whole year.

 Years Bacteria $0$ $\frac{1}{3}$ $\frac{2}{3}$ $1$ $\frac{4}{3}$ $\frac{5}{3}$ $2$ $\frac{7}{3}$ $\frac{8}{3}$ $2$ $6$

Explicit equation:

### 11.

The values in the table grow by a factor of at each whole year.

 Years Bacteria $0$ $\frac{1}{2}$ $1$ $\frac{3}{2}$ $2$ $\frac{5}{2}$ $3$ $\frac{7}{2}$ $4$ $2$ $8$

Explicit equation:
