I'm assuming this is supposed to say: "What are three consecutive integers that add together to equal 171?"

This could also be "What are three consecutive integers that multiply together to equal 171?"

I will do both.

For the addition caseThink of "three consecutive integers" as the expressions x, x+1, and x+2. For any value of x, these three expressions will give that number, the number that is one greater than it, and the number that is two greater than it. So, the expression x+(x+1)+(x+2) is the general sum of three consecutive integers. Also possible is the expression x+(x-1)+(x-2), which are still three consecutive integers.

So, this is a simple equation:







Since x=56, x+1=57 and x+2=58

So the three numbers are 56,57,and 58

You can check this answer by adding the three numbers together. I'll bet they equal 171.

For the multiplication case:Refer to the explanation for the addition case, but instead of the end expression being x+(x+1)+(x+2), it is now the multiplication of the three integers, meaning the expression is (x)(x+1)(x+2), so we get:




I'll admit right now I don't know a simple way to solve this equation, which hints to me that addition was the intent of the question, but this equation can be solved by plotting the equations



and finding their point(s) of intersection. The value comes out to be approximately 4.6106, which means that the numbers 4.6106, 5.6106, and 6.6106 will multiply to equal approximately 171 (but not exactly). No exact answer is really possible here.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

The answer is 58. 56+57+58 = 171 171 is the largest palindrome less than 220 that can be divided by three. Further palindromes are: 181, 191, 202 and 212.

The sum of two consecutive positive even integers is 340 what are the integers?

There are no such integers. Proof: choose any positive whole number x two consecutive even integers: (2x) (2x+2) Take the sum (2x)+(2x+2) (2x)+(2x+2)=340 4x+2=340 4x=338 x=338/4=84.5 Since this is not a whole number, there is no whole number that satisfies the conditions. (There are two consecutive odd integers which add up to 340: 169 and 171)
