    sum of all terms except the first one is 682 + 1364 = 2016

    looks like  first term = 2 and common ratio = 2

    becuase sum oi 10 terms is  a1  (r^10 – 1) / (r – 1) 
    and if we plug in fisrt term a1 = 2 and r = 2 we get

    2 * (2^10 – 1) / (2 -1) we get 2046

    so first member is 2 and common ratio = 2
