#### Answer

$r=\dfrac {1}{2};a_{1}=-2$

#### Work Step by Step

$\dfrac {a_{m}}{a_{n}}=r^{m-n}\Rightarrow \dfrac {a_{g}}{a_{4}}=r^{5}=\dfrac {-\dfrac {1}{128}}{-\dfrac {1}{4}}=\dfrac {1}{32}\Rightarrow r=\dfrac {1}{2};a_{4}=a_{1}\times r^{3}\Rightarrow -\dfrac {1}{4}=a_{1}\times \left( \dfrac {1}{2}\right) ^{3}\Rightarrow a_{1}=-2$
