Solution 6

Let the required numbers be (a - d), a and (a + d)

But sum = 15 and product = 80

Hence, the required numbers are (2, 5, 8)

Solution 7

Let the required numbers be (a - d), a, (a + d)

Sum of these number = (a - d) + a + (a + d) = 3a

Product of these numbers = (a - d) a (a + d)

But,sum = 3 and product = - 35

Thus, a = 1 and d = 6

Hence, the required numbers are (-5, 1, 7)

Solution 8

Let the required number be (a - d), a and (a + d)

Sum of these numbers = (a - d) + a + (a + d) = 3a

Product of these numbers = (a - d) x a x (a + d)

Thus, a = 8 and d = 3

Hence the required numbers are (5, 8, 11)

Solution 10

Let the required angles be (a - 3d)°, (a - d) °, (a + d) ° and (a + 3d) °

Common difference = (a - d) - (a- 3d) = a - d - a + 3d = 2d

Common difference = 10°

2d = 10° = d = 5°

Sum of four angles of quadrilateral = 360°

First angle = (a - 3d)° = (90 - 3 × 5) ° = 75°

Second angle = (a - d)° = (90 - 5) ° = 85°

Third angle = (a + d)° = (90 + 5°) = 95°

Fourth angle = (a + 3d)° = (90 + 3 × 5)° = 105°

Solution 11

Let the required number be (a - 3d), (a - d), (a + d) and (a + 3d)
