There are no three consecutive numbers with a sum of 170.

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.

EVERY three consecutive numbers add to a multiple of 3: Proof: numbers are n, n + 1 and n + 2. The total is 3n + 3 or 3(n + 1) This means that for any three consecutive numbers, the total is 3 times the middle number.

The numbers are 110, 111 and 112.

35+36+37

89, 91, and 93

They are: 65+66+67 = 198

129 divided by 3 is 43, so the three numbers are 41, 43, and 45.

Any pair of consecutive numbers will have an odd total. 10 and 12 are consecutive even numbers that total 22.

No whole 3 consecutive numbers total 46.

They are: 41+43+45 = 129

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.

It is not possible in our Universe that two consecutive numbers can total an even number, since any two consecutive numbers must be an odd and an even (or vice versa). There are two consecutive odd numbers which total 132 ie 65 and 67

64 + 66 + 68 = 198

30+32+34=96

11 x 12 x 13 = 1716

Call the smallest number x, which makes the next two consecutive even numbers x+2 and x+4. The sum of these three numbers is 36, so: x + (x + 2) + (x + 4) = 36 3x + 6 = 36 3x = 36 - 6 = 30 x = 10 So the three numbers are 10, 12, and 14, which indeed total 36. So the largest number is 14. Note that the question was about consecutive even numbers. Had the question just been about consecutive numbers, the numbers would be x, x+1, and x+2, so you'd get x + (x+1) + (x+2) = 36, 3x + 3 = 36, 3x = 33, x=11. The three numbers would be 11, 12, and 13, so the answer would be 13.
