    if x is the first integer, the next consecutive integer is x+1 and the one after that is x+1+1 their sum is 120 so x +x+1+x+1+1 = 120 3x = 117 x = 39

    -The sum of three consecutive integers is 120. What are the integers. Well, the average value of the three numbers must be 120/3 = 40 so, 39, 40, 41 -Find three consecutive integers such that the sum of the first and third equals the sum of the second and 21 so x + (x + 2) = (x + 1) + 21 Solving for x will give 20 as the first number, so 20, 21, and 22. -Find four consecutive even integers such that four times the sum of the first and second is 8 less than 7 times the fourth 4[x + (x+1)] = 7(x+3) -8 Solving for x will give 9 as the first number, so 9, 10, 11, 12
