The next number in the sequence is 1/32. What is the function machine you would use to find the nth term of this sequence?

Hint: look at the denominators

We notice that

1/2^0 = 1/1 = 1

1/2^1 = 1/2

1/2^2 = 1/4

1/2^3 = 1/8

1/2^4 = 1/32

So we write our explicit formula for term n:

f(n) =

**1/2^(n - 1)**
