Going Cyclic With Arithmetic (Posted on 2009-06-08) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Three 3-digit positive base N integers P, Q and R, each with no leading zeroes and having the restriction P < Q < R, are such that:

  • Q is the arithmetic mean of P and R, and:
  • P, Q and R can be derived from one another by cyclic permutation of digits.
Determine all possible positive integer values of N < 30 for which this is possible.
