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.

how to solve ?
@destry_08 noone is allowed to see others solution bro
https://www.spoj.com/submit/ACPC10A/id=23628274 can someone please tell me the problem with my code
don't use fractions to check condition
quite an easy problem. just keep in mind that three consecutive zeroes at the program
@vambot int is fine
use float instead of int
Those who are using Python be careful (i got a lot of errors) , use C it's an easy question btw.Last edit: 2019-01-26 07:11:45
It gives me Run Time Error. Do you have any idea why?
AC In One Go!!! Requires Some Basic Math.
