Matt's means

Algebra Level 2

The arithmetic mean, geometric mean, and harmonic mean of a,b,ca,b,c are 8, 5, 3, respectively. What is the value of a2+b2+c2 a^2 + b^2 + c^2 ?

This problem is posed by Matt.

Details and Assumptions:

The arithmetic mean, geometric mean, and harmonic mean of nn numbers a1,a2,,ana_1, a_2, \ldots, a_n are (respectively)

i=1nann,i=1nann,(ni=1n1an). \frac {\sum_{i=1}^{n} a_n}{n},\quad \sqrt[n]{\prod_{i=1}^{n} a_n},\quad \left( \frac{n} { \sum_{i=1}^{n} \frac{1}{a_n} } \right) .
