# If Each Term of a G.P. is Raised to the Power X, Show that the Resulting Sequence is Also a G.P. - Mathematics

Sum

If each term of a G.P. is raised to the power x, show that the resulting sequence is also a G.P.

#### Solution

Let a1, a2, a3, ................., an, ..........be a G.P. with common ratio r.

⇒ (a_(n+1))/a_n = r for all n ∈ N

If each term of a G.P. is raised to the power x, we get the sequence  "a"_1^x,  "a"_2^x,  "a"_3^x, ............,"a"_n^x,.........

Now, (a_(n+1))^x/(a_n)^x=((a_(n+1))/a_n)^x=r^x for all n ∈ N

Hence, "a"_1^x,  "a"_2^x,  "a"_3^x, ............,"a"_n^x,......... is also a G.P.
