Answers : (1)


Eccentricity is represented as a quality or amount of being strange or it’s a kind of state. The eccentricity is normally defined as the ratio of the distance between any points on the path on a conic part from where it’s threw and last point of the throw from the corresponding directrix. In general the eccentricity will look like a “throw”.

Description to Eccenctricity of an Ellipse:

The diagram will given below the structure of  an eccentricity of an ellipse:


from the diagram, we can know the formula for eccentricity, e=c/a

c=(a2 -b2)1/2

e=(a2 - b2)1/2 /a

in an ap the first term is 1, if second term, tenth term and thirty-fourth terms forms a GP, then what is the fourth term of the GP series?
here, a1=1 and 2,10,34 are forming gp. so we can write a2= a+d, a10= a+9d, and a34= a+33d. now its given that they are forming gp so by property we can write, (a+9d)square= (a+d)(a+33d)....
