#### Answer

The graph labeled as (c) matches with $a_n=18(-\frac{2}{3})^{n-1}$

#### Work Step by Step

$a_n=a_1r^{n-1}$ $a_n=18(-\frac{2}{3})^{n-1}$ $a_1=18$ $r=-\frac{2}{3}$ Since $a_1\gt0$ and $-1\lt r\lt0$, the terms of the sequence are alternating between positive and negative with their absolute value decreasing.
