    Integers = whole numbers So, your odds would be 1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,23,25,27 You then want to find three in that order that add up to 27. I'm not sure if there's a quick way to do it, I think trial and error is the best probably.

    You're welcome. I was too lazy to pull out a calculator and figure out what happens when you start adding. I'll be honest.
