The second term of a G.P is 12 more than the first term,given that the common ratio is half of the first term.find the fourt term of the G.P.

  • Mathematics -

    ar = a+12
    r = a/2

    a^2/2 = a+12
    a^2 - 2a - 24 = 0
    (a-6)(a+4)
    so, a=6, r=3
    or, a=-4, r=-2


    6, 18, 54, 162, ...
    or
    -4, 8, -16, 32, ...
