    Start with Q7:

    1st year : A
    2nd year : A x 1.035
    3rd year : A x 1.035 x 1.035

    This forms a geometric sequence with 1st term A and ratio 1.035. What's the nth term of this sequence?

    Then which value of n gives 2A?

    Please post your working if you get stuck.

    I checked the markscheme and my answers aren't right. The answers are 1 lower than what I got for n, ie. 11.2 and 20.15

    If you are the person in the group chat, then I have already helped you.

    But in case not. N is fine. No need to use n-1.
