find three consecutive odd integers such that twice the sum of the first and third integers is 21 more than the second integer. Define a variable, set up an equation and solve it.
X is my variable for my first odd integer. Since it must be consecutive the second variable will be x+2 and the third will be x+4
1st int = x2nd int = x+23rd int = x+4
And 2*( x+x+4)=21+x+22 * (1st int + 3rd int) = 21+ second int
1st int =5=x
2nd int =x+2= 5+2=7
3rd int = x+4=5+4=9
The answer is 5,7,9 <------
hope this helps
