you have the fact that a1 * a2 * a3 = 1428

and if d is the difference between a1-a2 and a2-a3,

then you have; a1* (a1 + d) * (a1 + 2d) = 1428

so thats the first piece of information. Do you think you could put the second piece of information in terms of a1 and d, and then you would have 2 variables and 2 equations.
