(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); bIn the geometric sequence above, b_{1},b_{2},b_{3},......_{1}=1000 and b_{n}=(2/3)b_{n-1}for all n[tex]\geq[/tex]2. What is the least value of k for which b_{k}<0.001?

3. The attempt at a solution

What I did first was I found what b_{0}is since we are given b_{1}and that is 1500. But I do not understand where the k is coming from and what needs to be found. Can someone please help me?

Thank you!
