If the mth term of a H.P. be n and nth be m, then the rth term will be



Your Answer
A

Your Answer
B

Correct Answer
C

Your Answer
D


Solution

The correct option is C


Given Tm = n, Tn = m for H.P. therefore for the corresponding A.P. mth term = 1n, nth term  = 1m

Let a and d be the first term and common difference of this A.P., then

a+(m1)d = 1n      ......(i)

a+(n1)d = 1m      ......(i)

Solving these, we get a = 1mn, d = 1mn

Now, rth term of corresponding A.P.

= a+(r1)d = 1mn+(r1)1mn = 1+r1mn = rmn

Therefore rth term of corresponding H.P. is mnr

Note : Students should remember this question as a fact.
