5 , 1 , 0.2 , 0.04 a 1 = 5 ; a 2 = 1 , a 3 = 0.2 , a 4 = 0.04 ... .
For Geometric progression a 2 a 1 = a 3 a 2 = a 4 a 3 = constant
Here a 2 a 1 = 1 5 = 0.2 , a 3 a 2 = 0.2 1 = 0.2 ,
a 4 a 3 = 0.04 0.2 = 0.2 . This constant (0.2) is called common
ratio. This is geometric progression and common raio is 0.2
