Dear Aparna,


a  = xyp-1  ,  b = xyq-1 and c = xyr-1   here,  x is first term and y is common ratio

as, G2 = AH we ahve,



aq-r = xq-r * y(p-1)(q-r)

br-p  = xr-p * y(q-1)(r-p)

cp-q = xp-q * y(p-q)(r-1)

multiply all 3 of them, we get RHS,

x0 * y0 = 1

henc proved.

Just multiply the terms..and find the pth,qth and rth term by using the formula.(take x as the first term)..And then put the values in the expression..u will get (abc)^0 i.e. 1.

A man starts from the point P(-3,4) and reaches point Q(0,1) touching x axis at R such that PR+RQ is minimum, then point R is : ???
It can be any point,because for any point on x-axis the sum of the distance is same as that of PQ. i hope u are satisfied. plese post if u r any further doubts.
Gosula Madhukar one month ago
Assume the point to be (x,0).Using distance formulae calculate the distance.Then we get. PR=[(x+3)^2+4^2]^1/2 and RQ=[x^2+1]^1/2 .Now add PR and RQ .let differentiate the eq and...
