Q. 5

Which term of the geometric sequence,

(i) 5, 2, … , is (ii) 1, 2, 4, 8,…, is 1024 ?

Answer :

(i) a1 = 5, a2 = 2




an = a1rn-1 (n = no. of term, a1 = first term of G.P, r = common ratio)





n-1 = 7


n = 8



(ii) a1 = 1, a2 = 2





an = a1rn-1 (n = no. of term, a1 = first term of G.P, r = common ratio)


1024 = 1 × 2n-1


210 = 2n-1


n-1 = 10


n = 11


1024 is the 11th term of G.P.
