Yes, if the first number is odd.

No. Any three consecutive numbers will have at least one of them which is divisible by 2, which means it cannot be prime. And since 1 is not considered a prime number, it cannot happen.

There is no set of three consecutive whole numbers that add up to 154.

Three consecutive whole numbers can be written as x, x + 1 and x + 2. Added together, their sum can be written as 3x + 3. Not only is that sum divisible by three, but by doing so [3(x + 1)] you can see that the sum is also equal to three times the second number.

No.

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.

-3, -2 and -1.

The sum of 3 consecutive whole numbers is always equal to 3 times the middle number in that sequence.

The numbers are 30, 31 and 32.

Yes but the on prime numbers are 2,3

The three consecutive whole numbers you are looking for are 1, 2, and 3. The sum of the first two numbers, 1 + 2 = 3.

There are 75 whole numbers from 100 to 999 that are divisible by both three and four.

For this to be possible with whole numbers, 175 has to be a multiple of three. It's not, it isn't.

The numbers are 9, 11 and 13.

Consecutive whole numbers have no other whole numbers between them.

The average of 33 consecutive whole numbers is 58, what is the smallest of these whole numbers? The answer is 42

There are two consecutive odd, whole numbers. The numbers are 39 and 41.

31, 32, 33

That isn't possible.

Three.

21/4 is not a whole number and it cannot be represented as consecutive whole numbers.

Divide the sum of the three consecutive numbers by 3: 75/3=25. The smallest of these numbers will be one less than 25 and the largest will be one more than 25, so the three consecutive numbers will be 24, 25, and 26.

Consecutive numbers are whole numbers whose difference is 1.

Consecutive whole numbers will have an odd sum. Consecutive odd numbers, or consecutive prime numbers, will be 29 and 31.

The only two consecutive whole numbers that are prime numbers are 2 and 3. Otherwise, every second consecutive whole number in sequence is even, and being multiples of 2, they cannot be prime.
