The smaller integer is 6, the larger integer is 32

If a and b are integers, then a times b is an integer.

The sum of three consecutive integers is -72

If the largest integer is subtracted from four times the smallest, the result is 4 more than twice the middle integer. Let the smallest integer be x, then the others are x + 2 and x+ 4. Therefore 4x - (x + 4) = 2 (x + 2 ) + 4 Expanding, we get 4x -x -4 = 2x + 4 + 4 Gathering terms: x = 12 Thus the three integers are 12, 14 and 16.

The LCM of a set of integers is the smallest positive integer which each of them will divide evenly.An alternative characteristic is that it is the smallest positive integer which is in the times-table of each of the numbers.

That has no integer solution. Three times an integer is another integer; if you subtract to integers, you get an integer again, not a fraction.

The smaller integer is 6, the larger integer is 32

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

Suppose the middle integer is 2a. Then the smallest is 2a-2 and the biggest is 2a+2. 4 times the smallest is 8a-8 So largest subtracted from the smallest is (8a-8) - (2a+2) = 6a-10 So, 6a-10 = 2*2a = 4a so that 2a = 10 So the integers are 8, 10 and 12.

If a and b are integers, then a times b is an integer.

If the largest integer is subtracted from four times the smallest, the result is 4 more than twice the middle integer. Let the smallest integer be x, then the others are x + 2 and x+ 4. Therefore 4x - (x + 4) = 2 (x + 2 ) + 4 Expanding, we get 4x -x -4 = 2x + 4 + 4 Gathering terms: x = 12 Thus the three integers are 12, 14 and 16.

Let's denote the unknown integer as "x". So now we have two integers, "x" and "4x" because one integer is 4 times the other. So the sum of x+4x= 5x 5x = 5 So x=1

Let x be the middle integer: 3(x+1) = 7(x-1) 3x + 3 = 7x - 7 3x + 10 = 7x 10 = 4x So the middle one is 10/4 which is not an integer. So there is really no solution.

It is two times the magnitude of the integer.
