a tree is planted when it has a height of 2 metres. duringthe first year it grows to a height of 3 metres. thereafter the increase in height every year is 4/5 of the increase in height durind the previus year. what isthe maximum height that the tree will reach?(Thinking) please people help me out on this one, its a sequence and series question
So, write it out and ponder it...
You may be expected to 1) Recognize the structure of the Geometric Series and 2) Know the formula for the sum.
Note: The question is a little funny. I don't really like the phrase "maximum height that the tree will reach". I would prefer a limit sort of phrase, maybe something like "What height will the tree approach?" or "What is the minimum height the tree will NOT exceed?" It is a tough concept to get exactly right. Maybe the original question is okay for now.
thanx 4 helping(Clapping), however. i am still puzzled on how u got the answer(Worried)
1) I didn't get the answer. I left that for you.
