Homework Help: Math (Algebra)

Posted by Bob on Monday, May 6, 2013 at 1:45am.

If the sum of 3 non-zero distinct real numbers a, b, and c is 2, and the two sets {a,b,c} and {1/a,1/b,1/c} are the same, what is the value of a^2+b^2+c^2?

Note: Two sets are the same if there is a one-to-one correspondence between their elements. For example, the sets {1,2,3} and {3,2,1} are the same. Neither of them are the same as {1,2,1}.
