Worksheet on Mean Proportional

Practice the questions given in the worksheet on mean proportional.

1. Find the mean proportional of the following sets of positive numbers:

(i) x\(^{3}\)y, xy\(^{3}\)

(ii) (x - y)\(^{2}\), (x + y)\(^{3}\)


2. Find the mean proportional of the following:

(i) 9, 16

(ii) 4\(\frac{4}{7}\), 3\(\frac{1}{2}\)

(iii) (a + b)(a - b)\(^{3}\), (a + b)\(^{3}\)(a - b)

(iv) \(\frac{x^{2}}{4ab}\), \(\frac{a}{by^{2}}\)

3. Find the mean proportional between

(i) 5 and 45

(ii) 0.04 and 0.0036

(iii) 0.25 and 6.25

 

4. Find the third proportional of the following:

(i) 0.5, 0.25

(ii) a\(^{2}\)b, ab\(^{2}\)

(iii) \(\frac{x}{y}\) + \(\frac{y}{x}\), \(\frac{x}{y}\)

 

5. (i) If the mean proportional of a and c is b then prove that a, c, a\(^{2}\) + b\(^{2}\) and b\(^{2}\) + c\(^{2}\) are proportional.

(ii) If b is the mean proportional of a and c, prove that the mean proportional of a\(^{2}\) + b\(^{2}\) and b\(^{2}\) + c\(^{2}\) is ab + bc.

(iii) If b is the mean proportional of a and c, prove that

\[\left ( \frac{ab + bc + ca}{a + b + c} \right )^{3} = abc\]
