Arithmetic Progression 
14. For arithemetic progression addition of three terms is 15 and addition of their squres is 83 , then find that numbers
Let the terms are `ad, a, a+d`
Addition of this terms is `15`
`=> (ad) + a + (a+d) = 15`
`=> 3 a = 15`
`=> a = 15/3 = 5`
Addition of their square is `83`
`=> (ad)^2 + a^2 + (a+d)^2 = 83`
`=> a^2  2ad + d^2 + a^2 + a^2 + 2ad + d^2 = 83`
`=> 3a^2 + 2d^2 = 83`
`=> 3(5)^2 + 2d^2 = 83`
`=> 2d^2 = 8`
`=> d^2 = 4`
`=> d = + 2`
`d = +2 =>` Required terms : `5  2, 5, 5 + 2 => 3, 5, 7`
`d = 2 =>` Required terms : `5(2), 5, 52 => 7, 5, 3`
