to (i) terms (ii) terms




Question 12:

Find the term of an A. P. sum of whose first terms is .


Long Answer Type

Question 13:

If A is the arithmetic mean and , be two geometric means between any two numbers, then prove that


Let the two numbers be ‘a’ and ‘b’

The arithmetic mean is given by and the geometric mean is given by

We have to insert two geometric means between a and b

Now that we have the terms

will be the geometric mean of a and and will be the geometric mean of and b

Hence and



Square both sides

Put value of in

Now we have to prove that

Consider RHS

Substitute values of and from (i) and (ii)

Divide and multiply by



Hence RHS = LHS

Hence proved
