Question

Find the mean proportional to (x – y) and (x3 – x2y).

Solution

Let the mean proportional to (x - y) and `(x^3 - x^2y)` be n

`=> (x - y), n, (x^3 - x^2y)` are in continued proportional

`=> (x - y) : n = n : (x^3 - x^2y)`

`=> n^2 = x^2(x - y)(x - y)`

`=> n^2 = x^2(x - y)^2`

`=> n = x(x - y)`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
