# CAT 2017 [slot 2] Question with solution 26

Question 60:
If $log(2^{a}\times3^{b}\times5^{c} )$is the arithmetic mean of $log ( 2^{2}\times3^{3}\times5)$, $log(2^{6}\times3\times5^{7} )$, and $log(2 \times3^{2}\times5^{4} )$, then a equals
Explanation:

$log(2^{a}\times3^{b}\times5^{c} )$ = $\frac{log ( 2^{2}\times3^{3}\times5) + log(2^{6}\times3\times5^{7} ) + log(2 \times3^{2}\times5^{4} ) }{3}$

$log(2^{a}\times3^{b}\times5^{c} )$ = $\frac{log ( 2^{2+6+1}\times3^{3+1+2}\times5^{1+7+4}) }{3}$

$log(2^{a}\times3^{b}\times5^{c} )$ = $\frac{log ( 2^{9}\times3^{6}\times5^{12}) }{3}$

$3log(2^{a}\times3^{b}\times5^{c} )$ = $log ( 2^{9}\times3^{6}\times5^{12})$
Hence, 3a = 9 or a = 3
