Sum 1-6

Find the sum of the geometric progression 3, 15, 75,… to six terms.

Correct answer:

s6 =  11718

Step-by-step explanation:

a1=3 a2=15  r=a2/a1=15/3=5  s6=a1 r61r1=3 56151=11718   Verifying Solution:  a3=75 a4=r a3=5 75=375 a5=r a4=5 375=1875 a6=r a5=5 1875=9375  S6=a1+a2+a3+a4+a5+a6=3+15+75+375+1875+9375=11718
