The sum of three consecutive integers is 132. What are the integers?

Oct 28th, 2014

The easiest way to do this is to set up an unknown number as X. (It will be the lowest of the consecutive numbers.)

X + (X+1) + (X+2) = 132

3x+3=132

3x = 129

x = 43

So, the lowest number is 43, the other two are 44 and 45

43, 44, 45
