What Is the Next Number in the Sequence? 9….3….1….1/3…?


Question: What is the next number in the sequence? 9….3….1….1/3…

The given sequence is a geometric progression.

Answer: The next number in the sequence 9….3….1….1/3 is 1/9

Let's understand the pattern.

Explanation:

The first term is 9 and the second term is 3. It is obtained by dividing 9 by 3. 

Similarly, the third term(1) is obtained by dividing the second term(3) by 3.

Down the line, the fifth term is obtained by dividing the fourth term by 3.

So, 4th term = 3rd term / 3 = (1/3) / 3 = 1/ 9

Thus, the next number in the sequence 9….3….1….1/3 is 1/9.
