Harmonic series

Insert four members between 5/3 and 5/11 to form harmonic series (means).

Correct answer:

a2 =  1.087
a3 =  0.8065
a4 =  0.641
a5 =  0.5319

Step-by-step explanation:

a1=5/3=53=1231.6667 a6=5/11=5110.4545  b1=1/a1=1/1.6667=35=0.6 b6=1/a6=1/0.4545=115=215=2.2 d=(b6b1)/(61)=(2.20.6)/(61)=825=0.32  b2=b1+d=0.6+0.32=2325=0.92  a2=1/b2=1/0.92=1.087
b3=b2+d=0.92+0.32=3125=1625=1.24 a3=1/b3=1/1.24=0.8065
b4=b3+d=1.24+0.32=3925=11425=1.56 a4=1/b4=1/1.56=0.641
b5=b4+d=1.56+0.32=4725=12225=1.88 a5=1/b5=1/1.88=0.5319
