    It's really up to you. Generally we use n-1 because we start with a, and the 2nd term has ar, third term ar^2.
    Sometimes with years (often if it starts in year 2000) it's easier to start on year 0 (and use ar), even if it's more confusing. If you're not sure, stick with ar^(n-1)

    Looks to me like he's done this:

    Multiplied by 3^x on both sides to get rid of the fraction, which makes it 2*(3^x)^2
    Then he has expanded the bracket and indices to make 3^2x
    Divided by 2 to get x on one side
    Logged both sides
    Made it equal to x and then put it into the calculator

    If the question is asking to find a or the common ratio, I basically find these values and I plug them into both equation and see which one gives out either the first term or 2nd term.

    To avoid confusion, you should always use u_n = ar^{n-1} when calculating the term you want. As long as the correct values are used, you will get the correct answer. The only benefit of changing this formula to u_n = ar^{n} is when you have confusing values of n (such as years). If you are unsure, try to stick to the equation shown in the formula booklet as it will work fine.

    I've done so many past papers (from Edexcel, AQA, OCR and some harder ones), that my confidence has started shrunk, despite scoring 69+ on everyone of them. O_O
