Dear Harshit

let common difference are d1,d2 ,d3

a = n/2[2 +(n-1)d1]  or    1/d1 = n(n-1)/2(a-n)

similerly     1/d2 = n(n-1)/2(b-n)

1/d3 = n(n-1)/2(c-n)

d1 ,d2 ,d3 are in HP

2/d2 = 1/d1 +1/d2

n(n-1)/(b-n) = n(n-1)/2(a-n)   +  n(n-1)/2(c-n)

1/(b-n) = 1/2(a-n)   +  1/2(c-n)

n= (2ac -ab-bc)/(a+c-2b)
