For the product to be zero, one of the numbers must be 0. So the question is to find the maximum sum for fifteen consecutive whole numbers, INCLUDING 0. This is clearly achived by the numbers 0 to 14 (inclusive), whose sum is 105.

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.
