#### Question

The first term of a G.P. is 1. The sum of the third term and fifth term is 90. Find the common ratio of G.P.

#### Solution

Let a and r be the first term and the common ratio of the G.P. respectively.

∴ a = 1

a3 = ar2 = r2

a5 = ar4 = r4

∴ r2 + r4 = 90

⇒ r4 + r2 – 90 = 0 Is there an error in this question or solution?
