```										Dear rahul
let b,br,br2 are  3 number

so s2= (b)2 +(br)2 +(br2)2    ..............1
and as= b +br +br2    ..................2
square 2 eqation and divide it by equation 1
a2 =(b +br +br2 )2/((b)2 +(br)2 +(br2)2 )
=(1 +r +r2 )2/( 1+r2 +r4 )
=(1 +r +r2 )/(1 -r +r2 )
rearrange
r2 (a2-1) -r(a2+1) +(a2-1)=0
discrimnent must be greter than zero

(a2+1)2-4(a2-1)2>=0
or
(3a2-1)(3-a2)>=0
or
(a-√3)(a+√3)(a-1/3)(a+1/3)<=0

find a from this enequality
reject those value of a for which r=0 or r=1(since numbers are in gp)
