Answer:

Let the AP is a-2d,a-d,a,a+d,a+2d 

Arithmetic mean of the AP is fraction numerator left parenthesis a minus 2 d right parenthesis plus left parenthesis a minus d right parenthesis plus left parenthesis a right parenthesis plus left parenthesis a plus d right parenthesis plus left parenthesis a plus 2 d right parenthesis over denominator 5 end fraction equals 16

on solving we get

a=16

given d=2

So AP is 12,14,16,18,20
