# Geometric Progressions

A geometric progression is a sequence of numbers where the previous term is multiplied by a constant to get the next term. 1, 2, 4, 8,... is a geometric sequence where each term is multiplied by 2.

The geometric mean of the geometric sequence \({2, a_2, a_3}\) is 10. What is the value of \(a_3?\)

**Note.** The geometric mean of three numbers \(a_1, a_2, a_3\) is \(\sqrt[3]{a_1\cdot a_2 \cdot a_3}.\) For example, the geometric mean of \(2, 4, \) and \(8\) is \[\sqrt[3]{2\cdot(4)\cdot8} = \sqrt[3]{64} = 4.\]

\( x, y, z^2 \) is a geometric progression.

Each of \( x, y, z\) are integers.

\(x + y + z^2 < 120\).

**Find the largest possible value of \(x + y + z^2\).**
