Ok, if the smallest number among the three is \(n\). Then the next even number is \(n+2\) and the next after that is \(n+2+2=n+4\). So the sum of these three even numbers is \(n+(n+2)+(n+4)=3n+6\) we want this sum to be equal to -24. So \(3n+6=-24\) \(3n=-30\) \(n=-10\) So the next two even numbers are -8, -6. Thus -10,-8,-6 are the answers.

Les 2x = 1st integer 2x + 2 = 2nd 2x+4 = 3rd even integer the sum is -24 so 2x+2x+2+2x+4=-24 6x=-24-6=-30 x=-5 2x=-10 2x+2=-8 2x+4=-6 Making first digit equal 2x assures it is even. the next one is also even so it is 2x+2
