5862: 5+2=7, 8+6=14 so 714
3498: 3+8=11, 4+9=13 so 1113
9516: 9+6=15, 5+1=6 so 156
Thus,
8257: 8+7=15, 2+5=7 so 157

3 rational numbers form a geometric progression in its current order.

1. If 8 is added to the middle number, then this new sequence forms an arithmetic progression.
2. If 64 is later added to the last number, then this yet another sequence forms a geometric progression again.
3. First number of these sequences is an integer.

Find the numbers?
