Let nos be x-d, x, x+d
then (x-d)+(x)+(x+d)=48
=> 3x+d -d =48
3x=48
x=48/3
x=16

now
(x-d)^2 + x^2 + (x+d)^2 = 800
x^2 + d^2 -2xd + x^2 +x^2 + d^2 + 2xd=800
3x^2 + 2d^2 =800
3*(16)^2 + 2d^2 =800
3*256 + 2d^2 =800
768 + 2d^2=800
2d^2=800-768= 32
d^2 = 32/2= 16
d=sqrt(16)
d=4

so numbers are x-d=16-4=12
x=16
x+4=16+4=20

Thanks

### How many gallons in an 88" x 15" x 9" trough?

try this :

Instructions
1. Measure the rectangle length, width and height. For example, 8 inches long, 6 inches wide, 10 inches high.
2. Multiply the length by the height, then double the product. With this example, 8 inches multiplied by 10 inches results in 80 square inches, which multiplied by 2 equals 160 square inches.
3. Multiply the width by the length, then double the product. With this example, 6 inches multiplied by 8 inches equals 48 square inches, which multiplied by 2 equals 96 square inches.
4. Multiply the height by the width, then double the product. With this example, 10 inches multiplied by 6 inches results in 60 square inches, which multiplied by 2 equals 120 square inches.
5. Sum the amounts from Steps 1 through 3 to find the rectangle surface area. So adding 160, 96 and 120 square inches results in 376 square inches.

### Find the sum of all integer multiples of 8 between 33 and 3051.

This sum is equal to 40+48+56+64+72+...+3024+3032+3040+3048= 40+(48+3048)+(56+3040)+(64+3032)+(72+3024)...
There are (3048-40)/8+1=377 terms in sum. (48+3048)=(56+3040)=(64+3032)=(72+3024)=3096 and there are (377-1)/2=188 pairs whose sum is 3096. Only term that is not in such pair is 40.
Finally sum is 40+188*3096=582088.

### Find the area of a square whose sides are (4x+3)meters long each.

To get area, multiply the two sides together.
(4x+3)(4x+3)

16x^2(i.e.squared) + 24x + 9

Proof : If x=2
then side would be 11m
area would be 121m squared

Using our formula,
64 + 48 + 9
or 121m squared

### How to find perimeter of the triangle whose vertices are the ff.points A(6,2)B(4,3)C(0,1)

I'm sure there are easier ways to do this but the "brute force" method is to label point A as x1, y1; point b as x2, y2 and point c as x3,y3. Then just do square root of the sum of: (x2-x1)squared+(y2-y1)squared. Save this into memory 'A'. Now do the same for x2,y2 to x3,y3 and add this to the number saved in 'A' and do it once more for x3, y3 to x1, y1 and add to the number in 'A' to get the result.
