Answer :

Let first term of GP be a and common ratio be r


As nth term of GP is given as –


Tn = arn – 1


T4 = ar4 – 1 = ar3


Similarly T10 = ar9


And T16 = ar15


x = ar3, y = ar9 & z = ar15


Clearly we observed that x, y, z have a common ratio.


x,y,z are in GP with common ratio r6.Hence proved.
