Three positive numbers that will result the same when multiplied together or added together.Note: It is not a fractional number.



Let's start by picking two positive real numbers a,b and see if we can find a third value c such that a+b+c=abc. We'll try to rearrange this to solve for c. Subtract from both sides to get a+b=c(ab−1). If ab>1, we can divide by ab−1 to get the positive value c=a+bab−1. This gives you a solution for any two values a,b such that ab>1.

For ab≤1abc≤c<a+b+c so there are no solutions. This means that we've characterized all solutions in positive real numbers.

Hope I helped you! :)
