# Question given the following investments returs, calculate the geometric mean return -3%, 2%, -5%, 2.7%,3.1%

&#12304;General guidance&#12305;The answer provided below has been developed in a clear step by step manner.Step1/2 The geometric mean return for the following investment rates can be computed by using the formula;$$\mathrm{{G}{M}{R}={\left({\left({1}+{r}_{{1}}\right)}{\left({1}+{r}_{{2}}\right)}{\left({\left({1}+{r}_{{3}}\right)}×..{\left({1}+{r}_{{n}}\right)}\right)}^{{\frac{{1}}{{n}}}}-{1}\right.}}$$Explanation Here , $$\mathrm{{r}=}$$rate of investments and $$\mathrm{{n}=}$$number of investments.Explanation:Please refer to solution in this step.Step2/2Hen ...
