Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free geometric sequence worksheet of 38 questions and answers
A geometric sequence is a number sequence with a common ratio. The number sequence may have integers, fractions, decimals or a combination.
The common ratio can be found by dividing consecutive terms of the geometric sequence and can be used to find the next term in the sequence by multiplying the previous term by the common ratio. The common ratio can also be used to find other missing terms in the sequence by multiplying or dividing terms by it.
If the number sequence is increasing this means that the common ratio is greater than one. If the number sequence is decreasing this means that the common ratio is less than one.
The first term and the common ratio can be used to write the nth term of a geometric sequence (or position-to-term formula).
Looking forward, students can progress with other sequences worksheets and on to additional algebra worksheets, for example a simplifying expressions worksheet or simultaneous equations worksheet.
