2. so you would have
5 m n o p 1215

that is..
a = 5 and t(6) = ar^5 = 1215
5r^5 = 1215
r^5 = 243
r = 3

so the 6 terms would be
5 15 45 135 405 1215

The mean defined in the text is sometimes called the arithmetic mean to distinguish it from other possible means. For example, a different mean, called the geometric mean (G.M.), is used in business and economics for finding
