Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

let one of the smallest integer be x,then

they are consecutive so  x , x+1 ,x+2 will be the integers

The sum of three consecutive integers is 108.

so, x+ x+1+x+2 = 108

     3x+1+2 =108

    3x +3 =108

    3x = 108-3

    3x = 105


     x =35

so the smallest integer is 35

other integers are 35 + 1 =36

                             35 +2 = 37

answer is

integers are 35,36,37
