# Arithmetic Progression

**Problem**

The digits of a three-digit number are in arithmetic progression. If you divide the number by the sum of its digits, the quotient is 26. If the digits are reversed, the resulting number is 198 more than the original number. Find the sum of all the digits.

A. 9 | C. 15 |

B. 12 | D. 18 |

## Relationship Between Arithmetic Mean, Harmonic Mean, and Geometric Mean of Two Numbers

For two numbers *x* and *y*, let *x*, *a*, *y* be a sequence of three numbers. If *x*, *a*, *y* is an arithmetic progression then '*a*' is called *arithmetic mean*. If *x*, *a*, *y* is a geometric progression then '*a*' is called *geometric mean*. If *x*, *a*, *y* form a harmonic progression then '*a*' is called *harmonic mean*.

Let *AM* = arithmetic mean, *GM* = geometric mean, and *HM* = harmonic mean. The relationship between the three is given by the formula

Below is the derivation of this relationship.
