Non-arithmetic Triplets (Posted on 2013-04-08) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Find nine different integers from 1 to 20 inclusive such that no combination of any three of the nine integers form an arithmetic sequence.

(For example, if two of the integers chosen were 7 and 13, then that would preclude 1, 10 and 19 from being included.)

i fully get your point.

No claim was made on a method , and I  have only esplained how I got it , not how to  evaluate k out of m members.

No doubt, for larger numbers a similar problem needs computerized method.
