    Arithematic Progression -Logarithm

    If log_k x, log_m x , log_nx are in A.P then prove that n^2 = (kn)^{log_km}

    If the terms are in A.P then : 2 log_mx = log_k x + log_nx =  \frac{2}{log_xm} = \frac{1}{log_xk}+ \frac{1}{log_xn}

    = \frac{2}{log_xm}= \frac{log_xn+log_xk}{log_xklog_xn} can we solve this way or not..............please guide

    2\log_{m}x = \log_{k}x + \log_{n}x.

    Start by using the change of base formula so that all logs are to base k.

    Cancel the \log_{k}x throughout, cross multiply and that gets you a 2\log_{k}n (which becomes) \log_{k}n^2 on the LHS.

    Try finishing from there.
