As the number 1 is considered a special case and not a prime, there cannot be three consecutive numbers that are prime. Any three consecutive numbers must include at least one even number. With the exception of the number 2, no even numbers are prime.

The three consecutive odd prime numbers are 3, 5, and 7.

3 consecutive numbers cannot be prime factors. Any three consecutive numbers would include at least one even number. The only even prime number is 2, and (2,3,4) doesn't qualify.

The three consecutive even numbers with a sum of 138 are 44, 46 and 48.

3, 5 and 7 are consecutive odd prime numbers.

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.

That doesn't work. The number has to be divisible by three. Any three consecutive numbers add up to a multiple of three.
