# The fifth term of the HP 2, $$2\frac{1}{2}$$, $$3\frac{1}{3}$$ will be

(1)

$$\begin{array}{l}5\frac{1}{5}\end{array}$$

(2)

$$\begin{array}{l}3\frac{1}{5}\end{array}$$

(3) 1/10

(4) 10

Solution:

2, 2 ½ , 3 ⅓ are in HP.

Ie, 2, 5/2, 10/3 are in HP.

So ½, ⅖, 3/10 are in AP.

Here a = ½

d = -1/10

5th term of AP = a+4d

= ½ -4/10

= 1/10

So 5th term of HP = 10

Hence option (4) is the answer.
