5*6*7 = 210

22*23*24 = 12144

-- method -- We need X numbers which are consecutive, so the middle number will be 1/ X of the total. Divide the sum of the numbers by the number of numbers ... in this case divide 186 by 3. The numbers are to be consecutive and even, so subtract 2 from the number go get one of the numbers and add 2 to the number to get the other number. You now have three numbers which are even and consecutive. Now, place a minus sign in front of them, to turn them into negative numbers For instance 12, 14 and 16 are three consecutive numbers whose sum is 42. -12, -14 and - 16 are three consecutive even integers whose sum is -42 Now you know all you need to solve the problem.

9240 is the product of the three consecutive integers 20, 21, and 22.

Any two consecutive numbers must comprise one odd and one even number, so their product must be even. Any three consecutive numbers must include two consecutive numbers so the result still applies.

There are no such numbers. The smallest set of three consecutive composite numbers is {8, 9, 10} and the product of these numbers is 720.

Three consecutive odd numbers: 3, 5, 7

3 x 4 x 5 = 60 The three consecutive numbers are 3, 4, and 5.

The numbers are 30, 31 and 32.

There is only one pair of consecutive prime numbers, and the prime numbers are two and three, because any pair of consecutive numbers has one odd and one even number, and two is the only even prime number, because all other even numbers can be divided by two, and the only pairs of consecutive numbers are one and two and three, but one is not prime because it only has one factor, thus making the only consecutive pair of primes two and three. But the problem asks for the product of the two numbers, not the numbers themselves, so just multiply two and three together to get a final result of six.

The smallest consecutive three numbers that total 120 are... 39, 40 & 41.
