# How do I find the common ratio of an geometric sequence on a calculator?

Assuming the terms are nonzero, we can find the common ratio

Then, assuming the terms are nonzero, dividing any term by the prior term will give the common ratio:

To find the common ratio (r) of a geometric sequence on a calculator, you can use the formula:

r = (any term of the sequence) / (previous term)

- Enter the value of any term in the geometric sequence.
- Divide it by the value of the previous term in the sequence.
- The result will be the common ratio (r) of the geometric sequence.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
