    you can look at it like this: x+y+z=116 but there is another way. can you think of it.

    seeing as the three integers are consecutive would that not mean that they could be expressed as x+(1+x)+(2+x)?

    The sum of the squares of three consecutive positive even integers is 116. What are the numbers? ------------------ 116/3 = apx 39 sqrt(39) = apx 6, the middle number --> 4, 6 & 8
