if a, b and c are in A.P., then 2b = (a+c) .......................(1)
 
if a, x and b are in G.P., then ab = x2 ............................(2)
 
if b,y and c are in G.P., then bc = y2  .........................(3)
 
by adding (2) and (3), we get,   ab + bc = b(a+c) = x2 + y2   ....................(4)
 
using eqn. (1) in eqn.(4), we get,  2b2 = x2 + y2  .........................(5)
 
from eqn.(5), we know that, x2 , b2 and y2 are in A.P.,
