SUPER G.S QUESTION :
___________________
An infinite G.s the sum of the 1st n terms =b ,and the sum of the first 2n terms = c , and the sum of the first 3n terms = d , PROVE THAT (b,cd,dc,.....) is an infinite G.s and the sum of any number of its terms cant exceed the sum of the sum of the original sequence up to infinity ......

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@experimentX : he want to prove that these sequence is an infinite G.s ,not a Geometric sequence and since your working on the Geometric Mean that will lead you to the Geometric sequence ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[ S_n = \frac{n(2a + (n1)d)}{2}\] \[ S_{2n} = \frac{2n(2a + (2n1)d)}{2}\] \[ S_{3n} = \frac{3n(2a + (3n1)d)}{2}\] Find the differences, \[ S_{2n}  S_{n} = \frac{2n(2a + (2n1)d)}{2} \frac{n(2a + (n1)d)}{2} = \frac{n}{2}(2a + (3n  1)d) \] \[ S_{3n}  S_{2n} = \frac{3n(2a + (3n1)d)}{2} \frac{2n(2a + (2n1)d)}{2} = \frac{n}{2}(2a + (5n  1)d) \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2experimentX: the question says "geometric sequence" not "arithmetic sequence", so the formula for the sum should be:\[S_n=\frac{a(1r^n)}{1r}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if you use this, then you should be able to do the question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Also, Eyad, I think you may have a mistake in the question. I think it should say: "PROVE THAT (b, cb, dc, .....) is an ..." and not: "PROVE THAT (b, cd, dc, .....) is an ..."

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2note the 2nd term should be "cb" not "cd"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2otherwise 3rd term = (2nd term)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0also something quite not right ... http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=%282^101%29%28%282^301%29%282^201%29%29+%3D+%282^201%29^2 I'm beginning to see things ... i think i should get some sleep .. lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you should be able to use the formula I gave you to prove this fairly easily

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I dont want to bother you asnaseer i think iam gonna make sure first if the question is written correct then we shall begin again ,what do u think ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok, we know:\[S_n=\frac{a(1r^n)}{1r}=b\]therefore the sum of the first 2n terms must be:\[S_{2n}=\frac{a(1r^{2n})}{1r}=c\]similarly, the sum of the first 3n terms must be:\[S_{3n}=\frac{a(1r^{3n})}{1r}=d\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2therefore:\[cb=\frac{a(1r^{2n})}{1r}\frac{a(1r^{n})}{1r}=\frac{a(1r^{2n}1+r^n)}{1r}=\frac{a(r^nr^{2n})}{1r}=\frac{ar^n(1r^{n})}{1r}\]\[\qquad=br^n\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2sorry that should be  similarly, you should be able to show:\[dc=br^{2n}\]

asnaseer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so you will be left with the sequence:\[b,cb,dc,...\]which equals:\[b,br^n,br^{2n},...\]
