Geometric sequence 5

About members of geometric sequence we know:

3a5:a3=27:25 3 a5:a3 = 27:25

7a3+5a7=1:564 7 a3 +5 a7 = 1 : 564

Calculate a1 (first member) and q (common ratio or q-coefficient)


q =  0.6
a1 =  204.84658


3a5:a3=27:25 3a1q4:(a1q2)=27:25 3q2=27/25 q2=9/25 q=±3/5 q1=3/5 q2=3/5  3 a_5:a_3 = 27:25 \ \\ 3 a_1 q^4 : (a_1 q^2 ) = 27:25 \ \\ 3 q^2 = 27/25 \ \\ q^2 = 9/25 \ \\ q = \pm 3/5 \ \\ q_1 = - 3/5 \ \\ q_2 = 3/5 \ \\ \ \\
7a3+5a7=1:564 7a1q2+5a1q6=1:564 a1(7q2+5q6)=1:564  a1=564:(63/25+729/3125) a1=204.846587 a_3 +5 a_7 = 1 : 564 \ \\ 7a_1q^2+5a_1q^6 = 1:564 \ \\ a_1 (7q^2+5q^6) = 1:564 \ \\ \ \\ a_1 = 564 : (63/25 + 729/3125) \ \\ a_1= 204.84658

Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
