Step 1 Given the sequence \((a) \frac{1}{3}, \frac{2}{9}, \frac{3}{27}, \frac{4}{81},...\) Common difference, \(d = t_1 − t_2 = \frac{2}{9} − \frac{1}{3} = \frac{-1}{3} \neq t_4 − t_3= \frac{-5}{81}\) The sequence (a) is not arithmetic . Common ratio \(r = \frac{t_2}{t_1} = \frac{3}{2} \neq \frac{7}{2} = \frac{t_3}{t_2}\) The sequence (a) is not geometric. The given sequence is none of the above mentioned types. \(ul O (a)\frac{1}{3}, \frac{2}{9}, \frac{3}{27}, \frac{4}{81},...\) Step 2 \((b) 3,8,13,18,...48\) Common difference, \(d = t_1 − t_2 = 8 − 3 = −5 = t_3 − t_2 = 13−8 = −5= t_4 − t_3 = −5= .....\) The given sequence (b) is arithmetic. \(ul A (b) 3,8,13,18,...48\)

Give the first six terms of the following sequences. You can assume that the sequences start with an index of 1.
1) An arithmetic sequence in which the first value is 2 and the common difference is 3.
2) A geometric sequence in which the first value is 27 and the common ratio is \(\frac{1}{3}\)
