If x = 1st integer x + 1 = 2nd integer x + 2 = 3rd integer Then: x + (x + 1) + (x + 2) = 267 x + x + 1 + x + 2 = 267 x + x + x + 1 + 2 = 267 3x + 3 = 267 Solve for each integer.

According to Hero...but 90 'are' not 3 consecutive integers.

  • Hero
@sylinan, why don't you show your steps for how you got 90
anonymous
  • anonymous
X+X-1+X-2 =267 3X -3 = 267 3X = 270 X = 270/3 X = 90

Okay, I see
Hero
  • Hero
But, you should do it the way I have shown next time.
Hero
  • Hero
So what are the other two integers?

@Tommy, you're way off bro.

5*6*7=210 6*7*8=336 QED no integers solve this question.

@sylinan, what are the other two integers?
anonymous
  • anonymous
90 x 91 x 92.......
Hero
  • Hero
@Tommy, those are not the integers
anonymous
  • anonymous
im not sure how to solve it
Hero
  • Hero
@sylinan, you already found x = 90
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh dear I'm getting confused with the sum & the product.... sorry guys.
anonymous
  • anonymous
but i thought it was wrong
Hero
  • Hero
I just said you did it differently @sylinan. Afterwards, I asked you to continue finding the other two integers.
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh.. my bad
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm wrong.. you know 'x' now find the other 2 integers the other two 'x's.
Hero
  • Hero
Nobody is going to give you the answer. Especially not @T0mmy
anonymous
  • anonymous
Now even I know the answer Hero... merely a xmas mistake...cheers. ;D
anonymous
  • anonymous
haha i know okay x + x + 1 + x +2 = 267 3x + 3 = 267 3x = 267 - 3 3x = 264 ?
Hero
  • Hero
You can do it either way @sylinan
Hero
  • Hero
Both formulas work. All you need to do is figure out all three integers.
Hero
  • Hero
You found out that 90 is one of them. What are the other two?
