Prove that log a, log ar, log ar^2 is an a.p.
Is the following below correct?
Log ar^2  Log ar= Log ar  Log a
hence applying laws of logarithm
Log(ar^2/ar) = log(ar/a)
Log and log cancels out and then crossmultiply
hence a^2r^2 = a^2r^2
L.H.S=R.H.S
Hence proved?

log a, log ar, log ar2, ...log a (r)^n
now, log ar^n=log a + n log r
consider the next term
log ar^(n+1)= log a + (n+1)log r
then
log ar^(n+1)log ar^n= log r which is a constant. Therefor, the progression is arithemetic.
