Let a, a+1, a+2. a+3 & a+4 be the numbers.
a^2+(a+1)^2+(a+2)^2=(a+3)^2+(a+4)^2;
solve this quadratic eqn. we get
a=10
Numbers are 10 11 12 13 14

10, 11, 12, 13, 14

10*10 + 11*11 + 12*12 = 13*13 + 14*14 = 365

If we have four positive numbers a, b, c and d, there are six ways to multiply the pairs i.e. a*b, a*c, a*d, b*d and c*d. If we tell you the result of five of them without telling you which one is the product of which pair as 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

What is the remaining product?
