# C2 Geometric Progression HELP! Watch

1. I don't understand Question 9b

why is the common difference not 0.3? why does the ms say 1.03
2. BUMP!
3. BUMP THis is quite urgent!
4. because if u use 0.3, its decreasing by 3%,
but using 1.03, it means its increasing by 3%. so its 100% plus 3%.
Do you get it?
