The letters A, B, C, D, E, F and G, not necessarily in that order, represents seven consecutive numbers.

  • F is as much less than B as C is greater than D.
  • G is greater than F.
  • B is the middle term.
  • A is 3 greater than D.

What is the sequence of letters from the lowest value to the highest value?

Clarification ... sorry guys, the 10 min. time slice has expired. I later realized that the puzzle does not have a unique solution. So, I updated it here as follows.

The letters A, B, C, D, E, F and G, not necessarily in that order, represents seven consecutive numbers.

  • F is as much less than B as C is greater than D.
  • G is greater than F.
  • B is the middle term.
  • The difference between A and D is the same as two times the difference between E and A.

Spoiler for solution


*edit* I had a suspicion my answer might not be the only solution. Working on the updated one now ...

F G B D C A

this works, but so does

F D B C A G

or
F D B C G A

etc.
