## General term of Geometric progression - Basic

In mathematics, a geometric progression, also known as a geometric sequence, is a sequence of numbers where each term after the first is found by multiplying the previous one by a fixed, non-one number called the common ratio. For example, the sequence 2, 6, 18, 54, ... is a geometric progression with common ratio 3.

Q1.  If the 4th, 7th and 10th terms of a G.P. be a, b, c respectively, then the relation between a, b, c is

•  a=(b+c)/2
•  a2=bc
•  b2=ac
•  None of these

b2=ac

Q2.  If the 5th term of a G.P. is 1/3 and 9th term is 16/243 then the 4th term will be

•  3/4
•  1/2
•  1/3
•  2

1/2

Q3.  If the 10th term of a geometric progression is 9 and 4th term is 4, then its 7th term is

•  6
•  36
•  1/4
•  None of these

6

Q4.  The third term of a G.P. is the square of first term. If the second term is 8, then the 6th term is

•   112
•   124
•  128
•  132

128

Q5.  The 6th term of a G.P. is 32 and its 8th term is 128, then the common ratio of the G.P. is

•  1
•  2
•  -1
•  -2

2

Q6.  Given the geometric progression 3, 6, 12, 24, ...... the term 12288 would occur as the

•  14th term
•   12th term
•   13th term
•  15th term

13th term

Q7.  Let {tn} be a sequence of integers in GP in which t4:t6 = 1:4 and t2+t5= 216, Then t1 is

•   12
•   14
•  16
•  None the above

12
