Six speeds

A drilling machine is to have 6 speeds ranging from 50 to 750 revolutions per minute. If the speed forms a geometric progression, determine their values.

Correct answer:

a1 =  50 rpm
a2 =  85.9386 rpm
a3 =  147.7088 rpm
a4 =  253.8778 rpm
a5 =  436.3581 rpm
a6 =  750 rpm

Step-by-step explanation:

a1=50=50 rpm
a6=750 rpm  a6=q5 a1  q=5a6/a1=5750/501.7188  a2=q a1=1.7188 50=85.9386 rpm
a3=q a2=1.7188 85.9386=147.7088 rpm
a4=q a3=1.7188 147.7088=253.8778 rpm
a5=q a4=1.7188 253.8778=436.3581 rpm
a6=q a5=1.7188 436.3581=750 rpm
