Math (Geometric Progression)

posted by .

5 distinct positive reals form an arithmetic progression. The 1st, 2nd and 5th term form a geometric progression. If the product of these 5 numbers is 124 4/9, what is the product of the 3 terms of the geometric progression?

Note: The phrase "form an arithmetic progression" means that the values are consecutive terms of an arithmetic progression. Similarly, "form a geometric progression" means that the values are consecutive terms of a geometric progression.
