Sorry
Q1) 45
Q2) .1
Q3)  Don’t know what A.P. means.  However as the problem is written you have 3 unknows and two equations.
1. x+y+z=24
2. (x)(y)(z)=440
This type of problem can’t be solved.  You need a third equation.  Unless of course A.P. has some sort of meaning that helps with solving it.
To solve I just substituted -1,-2, and -4 for the x and solved the equations you gave.  Hope this helps.

Actually, #3 is solved very easily with intuition.
My question, though: What is the purpose of this? Exam? Homework?

DLW you are right.  I guess I didn’t give it the proper amount of thought.  The answer is 8, 5, and 11.  I should have paid closer attention to my factoring efforts earlier.
Don’t know what it’s for I just like math problems.

RC2,
The “What is the purpose…” question was directed to the OP. While
most of us here probably like math and logic problems (a very good
thing, I think), every once in awhile someone tries to get others to do
homework or even exam problems for them. So solve the problems, if
you must :O) Just don’t give the answers to anyone who does not
deserve them.

Please solved the problem and give a solution as soon as possible.
The sum of three numbers in A.P is 24 and their product is 440.Find the numbers.

Here’s my solution :
Assume the 3 nos. are :  a , a+n , a+2n
Eq 1 : a + (a+n) + (a +2n) = 24 => a+n = 8
Eq. 2 : a*(a+n)*(a+2n) = 440
Since a+ n = 8 , the eq. 2 becomes : a*(a+2n) =440/8 = 55
The only possible values are :   a = 5 & a+2n = 11 , Solve this simple equation and you will get the three no.s in AP as 5 , 8 , 11
