the main question here is that can a sequence * arithmetic * be correct if the difference is also changing in terms of a geometric sequence ?\(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

now look at this sequence

0.33,0.3333,0.333333

now if we calculate the difference between the first two terms

its 0.0033

between the second and the third its

0.000033

the difference between the numbers goes as a geometric sequence

0.33,0.0033,0.000033 and the Ratio between them is 1/100

can this work as a sequence ? and if so what kind of sequence is it ?
