## sylinan 2 years ago help please! (: The sum of three consecutive integers is 267. What is the largest integer? Numerical Answers Expected!

1. Hero

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.

2. sylinan

is it x=90?

3. Hero

Not exactly

4. sylinan

i don't get it :/

5. T0mmy

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

6. Hero

@sylinan, why don't you show your steps for how you got 90

7. sylinan

X+X-1+X-2 =267 3X -3 = 267 3X = 270 X = 270/3 X = 90

8. Hero

Okay, I see

9. Hero

But, you should do it the way I have shown next time.

10. Hero

So what are the other two integers?

11. Hero

@Tommy, you're way off bro.

12. sylinan

im so lost);

13. T0mmy

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

14. Hero

@sylinan, what are the other two integers?

15. T0mmy

90 x 91 x 92.......

16. Hero

@Tommy, those are not the integers

17. sylinan

im not sure how to solve it

18. Hero

@sylinan, you already found x = 90

19. T0mmy

Oh dear I'm getting confused with the sum & the product.... sorry guys.

20. sylinan

but i thought it was wrong

21. Hero

I just said you did it differently @sylinan. Afterwards, I asked you to continue finding the other two integers.

22. sylinan

23. T0mmy

I'm wrong.. you know 'x' now find the other 2 integers the other two 'x's.

24. Hero

Nobody is going to give you the answer. Especially not @T0mmy

25. T0mmy

Now even I know the answer Hero... merely a xmas mistake...cheers. ;D

26. sylinan

haha i know okay x + x + 1 + x +2 = 267 3x + 3 = 267 3x = 267 - 3 3x = 264 ?

27. Hero

You can do it either way @sylinan

28. Hero

Both formulas work. All you need to do is figure out all three integers.

29. Hero

You found out that 90 is one of them. What are the other two?

30. T0mmy

I did lots og Guinness theen 7s angd got to the answert
