1) If the number 1,1/3,1/9, are terms of Geometric progression. Find its common ratio
2) If the second term of Geometric progression is equal to 3, and the 5th term is equal to 81/8. Find the 7th term.
3)If x,y,3 is a Geometric progression. Find the value of x and y
4) Insert 4 numbers between 128 and 4 to form a Geometric progression
5) The average maximum temperature in Cairo town in 1999 was 40 degree C in June, 30 degree C in July, 25.6 degree C in August and it is continue to decrease in the same manner during the following months. what will the average maximum temperature of Cairo be in February 2000 AD {(0.8)to the power of eight 0.168)

    1.
    r = 2nd/1st or 3rd/2nd
    = (1/3) / 1 or (1/9) / (1/3)
    = 1/3 for both

    2.
    ar = 3
    ar^4 = 81/8
    divide the second equation by the first
    r^3 = 27/8
    r = 3/2
    take it from there

    3. to be a GS
    y/x = 3/y
    y^2 = 3x
    that's all you can do, unless you know either x or y

    4.
    128 , 128r , 128r^2 , 128r^3 , 128r^4 , 4

    then 128r/128 = 4/(128r^4)
    solve for r

    5. you try it, it's easy.
