## Algebra 1

The common ratio is $\frac{1}{4}$. The next three numbers in the sequence are: 1 , $\frac{1}{4}$, $\frac{1}{16}$
The common ratio is $\frac{1}{4}$ because each number in the sequence is $\frac{1}{4}$ times more than the number before. In other words, each number in the sequence is multiplied by $\frac{1}{4}$. To find the next three numbers, simply multiply the last known number by $\frac{1}{4}$ and then continue the pattern: 4 x $\frac{1}{4}$ = 1 1 x $\frac{1}{4}$ = $\frac{1}{4}$ $\frac{1}{4}$ x $\frac{1}{4}$ = $\frac{1}{16}$
