Could someone teach me how to start on q4?
The last time I did geometric series was in core 2 but ive forgot them:/
Is it a,ar, ar^2?
2. Form of a geometric series:

a + ar + ar^2

We know that the common ratio, r, is 2, so:

a + 2a + 4a.

This means that the first root is equal a, the second, 2a, and the third, 4a.

Yes the roots would be such that in order for them to be positive.

Then just equate from your knowledge of roots of cubic polynomials, and solve for .
