## Problem 7

The first three terms of a geometric progression are $\sqrt 3$, $\sqrt[3]3$, and $\sqrt[6]3$. What is the fourth term?

$\textbf{(A) }1\qquad\textbf{(B) }\sqrt[7]3\qquad\textbf{(C) }\sqrt[8]3\qquad\textbf{(D) }\sqrt[9]3\qquad\textbf{(E) }\sqrt[10]3\qquad$

## Solution

The terms are $\sqrt 3$, $\sqrt[3]3$, and $\sqrt[6]3$, which are equivalent to $3^{\frac{3}{6}}$, $3^{\frac{2}{6}}$, and $3^{\frac{1}{6}}$. So the next term will be $3^{\frac{0}{6}}=1$, so the answer is $\boxed{\textbf{(A)}}$.
