ACPC10A - What’s Next
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.
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.
For each test case, you program must print a single line of the form:
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.

woohoo ac in one go again!!
@ashish_343 thanks bro
Stupid ass wrong f**king question . The wrong solution gets accepted . The numbers need to be distinct but the solution which got accepted could accept numbers which are equal disqualifying the criteria of non-zero integer as cd or cr . Still the solution got accepted . Such a waste of precious time .
ac finally! use b*b=ac intead of any fraction like (b/a)=c/bLast edit: 2018-03-26 20:12:47
can we take inputs and immediately print outputs? I have been trying to take all inputs first then print output.. i am new hereLast edit: 2018-03-07 06:49:18

NOTE: we will limit ourselves to arithmetic progression whose **common difference is a non-zero integer**.Last edit: 2018-02-26 15:46:39
Just have to take care 0,0,0 , nothing more to ensure.
