    Limiting Sums

    Hey could someone help me with this question?
    The third term of a geometric series is 54 and the sixth therm is 11 and 83/125. Evaluate a and r and its limiting sum.

    Thanks

    When someone poses an incompletely-specified question it shows he/she does not fully understand the question. Often a key part of the question is omitted, he/she being unaware it is an important part of the whole question.
