Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0X represents the FIRST of the three odd integers. So simply solve for X, and you will have found the first odd number. The next number will be 2 MORE than X as described by the (x+2). \[\large x+(x+2)+(x+4)=537 \quad \rightarrow \quad x+x+2+x+4=537\]\[\large 3x+6=537\]Understand how I combined the x's?
