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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

You can do it either way @sylinan

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