If the first of these consecutive integers is x, the second integer would be x + 1, and the third integer would be x + 2.Since the sum of the second and the third integer is 17, we can writex + 1 + x + 2 = 172x + 3 = 172x + 3 - 3 = 17 - 32x = 142x/2 = 14/2x = 7Thus, the consecutive integers are 7, 8, and 9.

This doesn't work for integers. Using 7, 8 and 9 comes up with 146 which is the closest you can get.

Let the first consecutive integer be x. So that:the second integer is x + 1,the third integer is x + 2, andthe fourth integer is x + 3.We have:(x + 1) + (x + 3) = 1322x + 4 = 1322x = 128x = 64 the first integerThus, the four consecutive integers are 64, 65, 66, and 67.

If the first of these consecutive integers is x, the second integer would be x + 1, and the third integer would be x + 2.Since the sum of the second and the third integer is 17, we can writex + 1 + x + 2 = 172x + 3 = 172x + 3 - 3 = 17 - 32x = 142x/2 = 14/2x = 7Thus, the consecutive integers are 7, 8, and 9.

Their sum is 99.

Consecutive integers could be thought of as counting numbers in a row. One of them is "lowest" and the next one will be one more than that, and the last one will be one more than the second one. The numbers 7, 8 and 9 and 46, 47 and 48 are each said to be three consecutive integers. You often come across a question that tells you that 3 consecutive integers add up to a value. Example 3 consecutive integers add to 6. What are the integers? Let the first integer be x the second is then x +1 the third x+2 add them x+x+1+x+2 =3x+3 and this would be equal to 6. we then have the equation 3x+3=6 3x=3 x=1 so the first integer is 1, the second would be 2 and the third 3

Let the first consecutive integer be x. So that:the second integer is x + 1,the third integer is x + 2, andthe fourth integer is x + 3.We have:(x + 1) + (x + 3) = 1322x + 4 = 1322x = 128x = 64 the first integerThus, the four consecutive integers are 64, 65, 66, and 67.

The let statement is: let the smallest of the three integers be x.

Since we know that the integers are even and consecutive, we can call them x, x+2, x+4, and x+6, with x being the smallest of the four. twice the sum of the second and third can be written as 2(x+2+x+4)=4x+12 the sum of the first and fourth increased by 14 is x+x+6+14=2x+20 Then we can solve 4x+12=2x+20-->2x=8-->x=4 4
