# What is the sum of the geometric sequence 8, 16, 32?

The sum of the geometric sequence is 56.

a --> is the first term of the sequence; in this case "a" is 8.

r --> is the ratio (what each number is being multiplied by) between each number in the sequence; in this case, each term is being multiplied by 2.

n --> is the number of terms in the sequence; in this case, there are 3 terms.

Knowing the value of each variable, you can substitute the values into the equation as follows:

Simplify and solve:

Therefore, the sum of the sequence is 56! Hopefully you've understood this and hopefully I was of some help! :)

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.
