In the sequnce above, each term after the first 1/2 of the preceding term. What is the least term of the sequnce is greater than 1 ?

a 32/15
b 16/15
c 15/8
d 15/4
e 15/2

pleas help with a formula


There is no need for formula:
240, 120, 60, 30, 30/2, 30/4, 30/8, 30/16, 30/32<1. So the leas term more than 1 is 30/16=15/8.

But still if you need: \(\frac{30}{2^n}>1\), where n is integer --> \(2^n<30\) --> \(n<5\) --> \(n=4\) --> \(\frac{30}{2^n}=\frac{30}{2^4}=\frac{15}{8}\).

Answer: C.

C. 15/8

E. 15/2


Greater than 1 = Numerator > Denominator

Now, go fearlessly- 30, 15 , 15/2 , 15/4 , 15/8, 15/16

Hence, the answer can be found in 10 seconds and it is (C)
