    If the GP.’s 5,10, 20, .......and 1280, 640, 320, ......have their nth terms equal, find the value of n.

    Solution

    The first G.P. is : 5, 10, 20,...........
    Here, a = 5, straight r space equals space 10 over 5 space equals space 2
                    nth term = <pre>uncaught exception: <b>mkdir(): Permission denied (errno: 2) in /home/config_admin/public/felixventures.in/public/application/css/plugins/tiny_mce_wiris/integration/lib/com/wiris/util/sys/Store.class.php at line #56mkdir(): Permission denied</b><br /><br />in file: /home/config_admin/public/felixventures.in/public/application/css/plugins/tiny_mce_wiris/integration/lib/com/wiris/util/sys/Store.class.php line 56<br />#0 [internal function]: _hx_error_handler(2, 'mkdir(): Permis...', '/home/config_ad...', 56, Array)

    The second G.P. is: 1280, 640, 320, ...........
    Here, a = 1280,  straight r equals 640 over 1280 space equals space 1 half
    nth term = ar to the power of straight n minus 1 end exponent space equals space 1280 open parentheses 1 half close parentheses to the power of straight n minus 1 end exponent
    Since the nth terms of both the G.P.'s are equal

    ∴      5 left parenthesis 2 right parenthesis to the power of straight n minus 1 end exponent space equals space 1280 open parentheses 1 half close parentheses to the power of straight n minus 1 end exponent space space space space space space rightwards double arrow space space space 2 to the power of straight n minus 1 end exponent space equals space 256 over 2 to the power of straight n minus 1 end exponent space space space space rightwards double arrow space space space 2 to the power of straight n minus 1 end exponent. space 2 to the power of straight n minus 1 end exponent space equals space 2 to the power of 8
    rightwards double arrow           2 to the power of 2 straight n minus 2 end exponent space equals space 2 to the power of 8 space space space rightwards double arrow space space 2 straight n space minus space 2 space equals space 8 space space space rightwards double arrow space space 2 straight n space equals space 10 space space rightwards double arrow space space straight n space equals space 5
