the answer is 6

Five, six and seven. (Check the math, so you can be sure!)

I hope you meant "product of smaller two"! 5 x 6 = 30, 72 = 49

Surely the question is wasn't meant to say what it literally said, but a solution to its literal statementis still possible.The two consecutive numbers are: 18 and 19.The smaller two numbers are: 18 and 19.Their product is 342 .The largest number is 19.Its square is 361.342 is 19 less than 361.

The three numbers are 6, 8, and 10. 102 - 8 x 6 = 52

The three numbers are 10, 9, and 8: 102 - (9 x 8) = 28

This isn't possible. They'd have to be even (8, 10, 12).
