The sum of two odd numbers is even and the sum of an even number and an odd number is odd.So the sum of three consecutive odd numbers is odd but 270 is even.Ergo there are no three consecutive odd numbers that sum to 270.Three consecutive numbers that sum to 270 are 89, 90, 91.Three consecutive even numbers that sum to 270 are 88, 90, 92.
The sum of any three consecutive even numbers must be divisible by 3. 32 is not, so there is no solution.
The sum of two evens is even so the sum of any number of evens is even. It is, therefore, impossible for the sum of three even numbers, whether or not consecutive, to be 57, which is an odd number.
The numbers are -30, -28 and -26.
90, 94, 96
If n is the first number, n + n + 1 + n + 2 + n + 3 will be the sum, which is 4n + 6. 4n is always even, and 6 is even. Therefore, the sum of four consecutive numbers is always even.
19 + 20 + 21 = 60
96+98+100 = 294
Yes, the sum of any three consecutive counting numbers has a factor of 3.
If the average of 3 numbers is 37 then the sum of those numbers = 37 * 3 = 111. Which is an odd number. Adding together even numbers never results in an odd number. Therefore the 3 numbers can not be even numbers; consecutive or otherwise. The question can not be answered.
84 + 86 + 88 = 258
The sum of 3 consecutive whole numbers is always equal to 3 times the middle number in that sequence.
There are no such answers. The sum of even numbers is even. The sum of odd numbers could be even, but the sum of three consecutive odd numbers is always odd. One could swap the questions to get potentially answerable questions: Sum of 3 consecutive EVEN integers = 150 48 + 50 + 52 = 150 unfortunately, we can already see that if we were to make these odd integers (add 1 to each), we would get 153, not 151. Sum of 3 consecutive ODD integers = 151 49 + 51 + 53 = 153 47 + 49 + 51 = 147 We can see that, whenever we slide our three consecutive integers up one, we raise the value of the sum up 3, and if we jump from odd to odd, or even to even, we raise each integer by 2, so we raise the sum by 6.
The numbers are 46, 48 and 50.
You probably want to know "What are the 3 consecutive whole numbers whose sum is 72 ?" They are 23, 24, and 25.
The least of the three numbers is 199.
The answer is 26+28+30 = 28*3 = 76
The numbers are 21, 22 and 23.
It can be, if the numbers are the right ones.
The numbers are 3, 4 and 5.
There are no such whole numbers. The sum of three consecutive whole numbers must be a multiple of 3; as 68 is not a multiple of 3 (68 = 3 × 22 2/3) it cannot be the sum of three whole numbers.
