**Recursive formula**for a

**geometric**sequence is an=an−1×r , where r is the common ratio.

Just so, what is the recursive formula?

A **recursive formula** is a **formula** that defines each term of a sequence using preceding term(s). **Recursive formulas** must always state the initial term, or terms, of the sequence.

Also, what is the recursive formula for finding the nth term in a geometric sequence? Summary. The general **formula** for the **nth term** of a **geometric sequence** is: an=a1⋅rn−1 where a1=first **term** and r=common ratio.

Hereof, what are the formula of geometric sequence?

The **formula** for the general term for each **geometric sequence** is Let's examine **sequence** A so that we can find a **formula** to express its nth term. The fixed number, called the common ratio (r), is 2; so, the **formula** will be a_{n} = a_{1}2^{n} ^{-} ^{1} or a_{n} = (1)2^{n} ^{-} ^{1} or So, a_{11} = 2048, or the 11th term is 2048.

What is recursive formula used for?

A **recursive formula** for a sequence allows you to find the value of the n^{th} term in the sequence if you know the value of the (n-1)^{th} term in the sequence. A sequence is an ordered list of objects.
