AP, GP and HP Questions and Answers

In this Page AP and GP and HP Questions is given for Practices. This will help in you Solving Different Questions in Different Examinations.

General form of AP ,GP and HP

Arithmetic Progression (AP):

The general form of an AP is : a, a + d, a + 2d, a + 3d, …, where a is the first term and d is the common difference

Geometric Progression (GP):

The general form of an GP is : a, ar, ar^2, ar^3, …, where a is the first term and r is the common ratio.

Harmonic Progression (HP):

The general form of an HP is : 1/a, 1/(a + d), 1/(a + 2d), 1/(a + 3d), …, where a is the first term and d is the common difference.

Examples

Example of Arithmetic Progression  4 , 8 ,12 , 16…

Example of Geometric Progression  2 , 4, 8 , 16 , 32..

Example of Harmonic Progression  $\frac{1}{2} , \frac{1}{4} , \frac{1}{6}$

If p, q, r pre in h.p, then q is connected with p and r as

$2\frac{1}{q} = \frac{1}{p}+\frac{1}{r}$

$2\frac{1}{q} = \frac{1}{p}+\frac{1}{r}$

$2\frac{1}{r} = \frac{1}{q}+\frac{1}{p}$

$2\frac{1}{r} = \frac{1}{q}+\frac{1}{p}$

$2\frac{1}{q} = \frac{1}{p}-\frac{1}{r}$

$2\frac{1}{q} = \frac{1}{p}-\frac{1}{r}$
