b2 = ac … (2)
c2 = bd … (3)
It has to be proved that,
(a2 +  b2 +  c2) (b2+   c2 +  d2) = (ab  + bc – cd)2
R.H.S.
= (ab +  bc+  cd)2
= (ab +  ad +  cd)2 [Using (1)]
= [ab +  d (a +  c)]2
= a2b2 + 2abd (a +  c) + d2 (a +  c)2
= a2b2 + 2a2bd+  2acbd  + d2(a2 + 2ac  + c2)
= a2b2 + 2a2c2+  2b2c2 +  d2a2 + 2d2b2 +  d2c2 [Using (1) and (2)]
= a2b2 +  a2c2  + a2c2 +  b2c + b2c2  + d2a2 +  d2b2 +  d2b2 +  d2c2
= a2b2 +  a2c2 +  a2d+  b× b2 +  b2c2+   b2d2  + c2b2 +  c× c2  + c2d2
[Using (2) and (3) and rearranging terms]
= a2(b2  + c2 +  d2)  +b2 (b2 +  c2 +  d2) + c2 (b2 + c2 +  d2)
= (a2 +  b2 +  c2) (b2 +  c2 +  d2)
= L.H.S.

Q30: The number of bacteria in a certain culture doubles every hour. If there were 30 bacteria present in the culture originally, how many bacteria will be present at the end of 2nd hour, 4th hour and nth hour?
Ans:  It is given that the number of bacteria doubles every hour. Therefore, the number of bacteria after every hour will form a G.P.
Here, a = 30 and r = 2
∴ a3 = ar2 = (30) (2)2 = 120
Therefore, the number of bacteria at the end of 2nd hour will be 120.
a5 = ar4 = (30) (2)4 = 480
The number of bacteria at the end of 4th hour will be 480.
an + 1 = arn = (30) 2n
Thus, number of bacteria at the end of nth hour will be 30(2)n.

Ans. The nth term of an arithmetic sequence can be found using the formula: a + (n-1)d, where a is the first term and d is the common difference.
3. What is the sum of the first n terms of an arithmetic series?
Ans. The sum of the first n terms of an arithmetic series can be calculated using the formula: S = n/2 * (2a + (n-1)d), where a is the first term, d is the common difference, and n is the number of terms.
4. How can you determine if a sequence is arithmetic, geometric, or neither?
Ans. To determine if a sequence is arithmetic, check if the difference between consecutive terms is constant. For a geometric sequence, check if the ratio of consecutive terms is constant. If neither condition is met, the sequence is neither arithmetic nor geometric.
5. What is the sum of an infinite geometric series?
Ans. The sum of an infinite geometric series can be found using the formula: S = a / (1 - r), where a is the first term and r is the common ratio. This formula is valid only if the absolute value of the ratio r is less than 1.
