the common ratio of a g.p is 2.if the 5th term is greater than the first term by 45, find the 5tth term

• f/math -

Is g.p. supposed to mean geometric progression? You should not assume that we know that.

The fifth term will be 2^3 = 8 times the second term

a5 = 8 a2
a5 = a2 + 45
0 = 7 a2 -45
a2 = 45/7
a3 = 90/7
a4 = 180/7
a5 = 360/7

Check: a5 - a2 = 315/7 = 45
