Geometric Progression
5. For geometric progression f( 1 ) = 2 , f( 4 ) = 54 , then find n such that f(n) = 18 . We know that, `a_n = a × r^(n-1)` Here `a_1 = 2` `=> a × r^(1 - 1) = 2` `=> a × r^0 = 2` `=> a = 2 ->(1)` `a_4 = 54` `=> a × r^(4 - 1) = 54` `=> a × r^3 = 54 ->(2)` Solving `(1)` and `(2)`, we get `a = 2` and `r = 3` Let n be the term such that `f(n) = 18` We know that, `a_n = a × r^(n-1)` `=> 2 × 3^(n-1) = 18` `=> 3^(n-1) = 9` `=> 3^(n-1) = 3^2` `=> n - 1 = 2` `=> n = 2 + 1` `=> n = 3`
