**Geometric mean**The geometric mean, also called the mean proportional, of two numbers a and b is the square root of their product. If a mm b= then m is the geometric mean of a and b .

**Geometric probability**A probability based on geometric relationships such as area, surface area or volume.

**Geometric representation of the circular functions**The representation of circular functions on a circle of unit radius. The trigonometric functions are called circular functions because their values are related to the lengths of specific line segments associated with a circle of unit radius.

**Geometric sequence**(A2T) A set of terms in which each term is formed by multiplying the preceding term by a nonzero constant.

**Geometry**Branch of mathematics that deals with the properties, measurement, and relationships of points, lines, angles, surfaces, and solids.
