# The Five Positive Numbers

Algebra Level pending

Let a, b, c, d and e are real positive numbers, such that
{a, b, c, d, e} > 0 and $$a\neq b\neq c\neq d\neq e$$.

Now consider following properties of {a, b, c, d, e}
1. a, b, c in A.P. (Arithmetic Progression)
2. b, c, d in G.P. (Geometric Progression)
3. c, d, e in A.P. (Arithmetic Progression)
4. $$a^{2}$$ + e = [ a $$\times$$ b ] + d
5. c + d + e = [ 2 $$\times$$ $$a^{2}$$ ]

If [ a + b + c + d + e ] is represented in terms of $$\frac{p}{q}$$, where p and q are co-primes.
What is value of [ 3 $$\times$$ q ] - p.
