I can't figure this out for the life of me:

A geometric series exists with the third term of 8 and the sixth term of 128, what is the geometric series?

Have you tried anything at all? What do you know about geometric series?

In particular, do you know the formula for the nth term of a geometric sequence? Use that formula knowing that a3= 8 and a6= 128 to get two equations in the two parameters you need.
