According to Wikipedia, an arithmetic progression (AP) is a sequence of numbers such that the difference of any two successive members of the sequence is a constant. For instance, the sequence 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, . . . is an arithmetic progression with common difference 2. For this problem, we will limit ourselves to arithmetic progression whose common difference is a non-zero integer.
On the other hand, a geometric progression (GP) is a sequence of numbers where each term after the first is found by multiplying the previous one by a fixed non-zero number called the common ratio. For example, the sequence 2, 6, 18, 54, . . . is a geometric progression with common ratio 3. For this problem, we will limit ourselves to geometric progression whose common ratio is a non-zero integer.
Given three successive members of a sequence, you need to determine the type of the progression and the next successive member.

Input

Your program will be tested on one or more test cases. Each case is specified on a single line with three integers (−10, 000 < a1 , a2 , a3 < 10, 000) where a1 , a2 , and a3 are distinct.
The last case is followed by a line with three zeros.

Output

For each test case, you program must print a single line of the form:
XX v
where XX is either AP or GP depending if the given progression is an Arithmetic or Geometric Progression. v is the next member of the given sequence. All input cases are guaranteed to be either an arithmetic or geometric progressions.

Example

Input:
4 7 10
2 6 18
0 0 0

Output:
AP 13
GP 54

Wrong statement, the input is not integers.
And careful with while loop.

@moh_game_dev the problem says that the number a,b,c are distinct.

simple AC in first go!!!!!!!!!

rock_puneet: 2019-08-19 09:05:45

you should first check for AP condition so it treat it as AP [moh_game_dev]

1 1 1 should be AP or GP ?

Print the answer without trailing zeros so that it's GP 54 and not GP 54.0 and GP 0.5 and not GP 0 or GP 0.500000.

Those who are using arithmetic mean condition,use (a+b)/2.0 instead of (a+b)/2

how to solve ?
1. write it down on paper calculate the pattern using higher grid values
2.code the pattern trick

@destry_08 noone is allowed to see others solution bro
