Find Harmonic mean using Arithmetic mean and Geometric mean
  • Last Updated : 15 Apr, 2021

Given two numbers, first calculate arithmetic mean and geometric mean of these two numbers. Using the arithmetic mean and geometric mean so calculated, find the harmonic mean between the two numbers.

Examples: 

Input : a = 2
        b = 4
Output : 2.666

Input : a = 5
        b = 15
Output : 7.500

Arithmetic Mean: Arithmetic Mean ‘AM’ between two numbers a and b is such a number that AM-a = b-AM. Thus, if we are given these two numbers, the arithmetic mean AM = 1/2(a+b)
Geometric Mean: Geometric Mean ‘GM’ between two numbers a and b is such a number that GM/a = b/GM. Thus, if we are given these two numbers, the geometric mean GM = sqrt(a*b)
Harmonic Mean: Harmonic Mean ‘HM’ between two numbers a and b is such a number that 1/HM – 1/a = 1/b – 1/HM. Thus, if we are given these two numbers, the harmonic mean HM = 2ab/a+b
Now, we also know that GM^2 = AM * HM

// C++ implementation of compution of
// arithmetic mean, geometric mean
// and harmonic mean
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to calculate arithmetic
// mean, geometric mean and harmonic mean
double compute(int a, int b)
{
 
    double AM, GM, HM;
 
    AM = (a + b) / 2;
    GM = sqrt(a * b);
    HM = (GM * GM) / AM;
    return HM;
}
 
// Driver function
int main()
{
 
    int a = 5, b = 15;
    double HM = compute(a, b);
    cout << "Harmonic Mean between " << a
          << " and " << b << " is " << HM ;
    return 0;
}
